Abstract

PEGORARO, Ludimar. O Terceiro Setor e a Educação Superior no Brasil: compromisso social das fundações em Santa Catarina, o caso Universidade do Contestado. - Porto Alegre: UFRGS, 2008. 358 f. Tese (Doutorado em Educação) ¿ Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul. Faculdade de Educação. Programa de Pós-Graduação em Educação, Porto Alegre, 2008. This thesis analyses the subject third sector and the undergraduate education in Brazil. It discusses the social compromise of the Santa Catarina state university foundations by studying the Contestado University. The work aims to show that Santa Catarina state has a unique configuration on undergraduate education. Probably it is the only one Brazilian state with this model. It has two public universities located in its capital, Florianópolis. To contemplate all other regions, there is a foundational association system called Associação Catarinense das Fundações Educacionais - ACAFE, in which students have to pay, classes are offered mainly at night, and most are working students during the day. The case study method was applied for this research. The work was based on bibliographic studies and a field survey, focusing on descriptive and qualitative topics. The techniques of interview and document analysis were used to get the data in the field survey. The interviews followed a pre-established schedule. The documents analysis was strictly related to the interviews. Twenty interviews were carried out, interviewing the founders of the foundations, teachers, current and ex-administrators of the Contestado University, and researchers that use to discuss the proposed subject. This work also includes inferences regarding to the undergraduate education in Portugal, and its relationship with the Brazilian system. The aim was to support a discussion regarding the relationship of the university and the society, or the social compromise of the university, in the context of the politics for undergraduate education in Brazil, the Santa Catarina state educational foundations, particularly through the Contestado University. The educational foundations of Santa Catarina state, if well structured, may be an interesting model for undergraduate education in Brazil. This should involve partnership with public and private sectors, under the control of the State, with actions for diminishing the slowness of the State, and not adopting the market characteristics of the global neoliberalism as parameter. The Contestado University may serve as an example of advance or retrogression of these institutions. Considering the historic trajectory of each institution, it was adopted the democratic administration, the innovation and excellence, the institutional identity, and the social relevance, as important principles to construct some models of universities, especially those constituted by socially relevant organizations of the civil society.
