The Culture and Extension has a wide role within the University. It acts in additional shares of education and research, as is an assemblage element of the whole University, and is still the open channel of communication with the society. Different kind of courses can be offered Specialization (360h), Improvement (180h), Update (30h) and Diffusion (8h) courses.


The Provost of Culture and Extension at USP is distinguished by its comprehensive role within the University. While other Provosts have locus of action more defined, the Culture and Extension operates in all areas. This action can be: in additional actions of teaching and research that escape from other Provosts; elements to constitute the assemblage of all University, or even to be the open channel of communication with the society and local community.


Despite the comprehensive nature of Culture and Extension, there is no clarity on the substance of its activities, either on the relationship between the two areas that comprise this Provost: although a relative consensus on the meaning of culture, extension´s meaning remains quite elusive, hindering the articulation of integrated actions and producing the impression of mutual independence.
