This work is characterized as a qualitative research of the case study type. It analyzes the conceptions of extension present in the documents that guide the educational processes of the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) and, through semi-structured interviews, the conceptions of extension of professionals from the Center of Human and Biological Sciences (CCHB) of UFSCar - campus Sorocaba, as well as the relation of this activity to the formation of teachers. It presents a discussion about the university, the training of professors and the university extension, especially that realized in the scope of the CCHB. The theoretical framework of analysis considers the critical conception of extension (SILVA, 2000) and the assumptions for the critical and reflexive formation of teachers (LIBÂNEO, 2011). The documents analyzed present a procedural concept of extension, in order to guarantee a link between the university and the community in order to meet their needs. Most interviewed professionals understand the university extension also according to a procedural perspective, with few who conceive it in a perspective close to criticism (SILVA, 2000). These professionals tend to think of the initial and continuous formation of teachers in a dialogical perspective between the licenciandos, the teachers teachers and the teachers of the schools. In addition, they consider it essential that, through extension activities, future teachers can overcome the ideal school vision, think and construct educational possibilities for a real school. However, few see extension as a space of construction of a critical and reflexive practice, articulated to a critical conception. There is a need to reformulate PPPs for undergraduate courses in order to meet the goal stipulated by the PNE that 10% of curricular credits in Higher Education are linked to extension programs and activities by the year 2020 It is important to emphasize the need for research aimed at and with extension to become effective in the university, and that extension, when becoming full and critical, cross the walls of the university, place the theoretical and practical field as two halves of a Even all of it, allows the sharing of knowledge with the community, in the sense of making the university more democratic, critical, open to the population and social demands.
