A university usually works in the three different fields or areas which have to be integrated: teaching, research and extension. Extension is usually the connection between the university and the community. At my university, at least, every student is required to enroll in course at extension to get a degree. I am not sure what the system at PUC.

Asker: So, what is meant by "extensão/extension"?

Asker: Thank you all for taking the time to help a bit. Considering the limited time I had to give the discussion and, indeed, the limited discussion that went on, I had to go with a different option. I went with "Central Coordinator of Extension Courses" faute de mieux.

Reference: Extension Department

Reference information:
1. Extensão

... "As universidades gozam de autonomia didático-científica, administrativa e de gestão financeira e patrimonial e obedecerão ao princípio da indissociabilidade entre ensino, pesquisa e extensão".

A palavra extensão, nesse contexto, implica em estender-se, em levar algo a algum lugar, ou até alguém.

No meio universitário, por vezes se confunde o termo "extensão" com "cursos de extensão universitária". Os cursos de extensão universitária, geralmente acadêmicos e com pequena carga-horária, destinam-se a complementar conhecimentos em áreas específicas. Já as atividades de extensão, dever constitucional das universidades, são bastante amplas, complexas e não se confundem com "cursos de extensão".

A **extensão universitária** é, na realidade, uma forma de interação que deve existir entre a universidade e a comunidade na qual está inserida. É uma espécie de ponte permanente entre a universidade e os diversos setores da sociedade. ....a Universidade leva conhecimentos e/ou assistência à comunidade, e recebe dela influxos positivos como retroalimentação tais como suas reais necessidades, seus anseios, aspirações e também aprendendo com o saber dessas comunidades.

Tipos de ações que caracterizam a extensão
• Cursos, palestras e conferências;
• Cursos de ensino a distância;
• Viagens de estudo;
• Campus avançados;
• Associações de ex-alunos;
• Campanhas orientativas e assistenciais;
• Programas e eventos culturais e esportivos;
• Universidades volantes;
• Escolas e hospitais flutuantes, etc.

2. University of Alberta – Extension Department

As one of the University’s earliest and most enduring departments, Extension was responsible for:
- building traveling libraries, which reached thousands of school children and adults who were geographically isolated from public libraries;
- bringing a variety of classes, such as art classes, to rural communities throughout Alberta;
- pioneering CKUA radio broadcasting; and ...
