III Seminário do Núcleo dos Direitos da USP “Universidade Responsável: Educação dos Direitos e a Construção da Cidadania”

Marking the third year of the Núcleo de Direitos activities of the Pró-Reitoria de Cultura e Extensão, the Seminar Universidade Responsável: Educação dos Direitos e a Construção da Cidadania aims at deepening the discussion on the role of education and university in the construction of citizenship, recognizing that  USP has the inescapable responsibility in this process and that the issue of human rights must be present in all its actions.

With an intense program over two days, the event contemplates discussions to propose a reflection on the role of the University in the face of threats and violations of rights that have been making present in their daily lives and in the country as well as on the diversity and rights in their teaching programs and on the role of extension activities in the defense and promotion of these rights. Are comprehensive issues that presents challenges and requires reflections, coordinated actions of management in partnership with an organized civil society.

At the end of the event, a plenary will be held to encourage an active discussion of the topics presented over the Seminar and for the preparation of a guideline document that indicates, with respect to questions of law, social inclusion and citizenship, ways to actions of the University over the next few years. Thus, it is expected that the seminar constitute a starting point for the implementation of new policies that will enable the University to establish itself as a truly civic institution, accountable and participatory in building a more fair, egalitarian and tolerant society.
