Extension is part of the educational process, having as its inducing and motivating force the immediate and most relevant questions demanded by society. It is by extension that IES interacts with the community in which it operates, becoming a bridge between the institution and the various sectors of society, presenting itself in several ways: course offerings, seminars, lectures, extension and assistance activities.
It is in the extension, that the students correlate the theoretical foundations with the practical doing, besides spreading and socializing the knowledge conveyed by the teaching and produced by the research. It also allows the knowledge of the reality of the community, diagnosing needs and demands of research and other actions. It is an academic activity that contributes significantly to the change of society, reinforcing the commitment of the IES to the social transformation, based on the principles of justice, solidarity, democracy and social inclusion.
