To illustrate the way in which neoliberalism and the creation of a common sense are associated, we present in this study a number of institutional and social experiences that have occurred in Latin America during the last 30 years. First, we explore the situation in Argentina, where the relationship between the university and society is being redefined. A new form of knowledge transfer to society, focused especially on social movements, is currently being carried out by different programmes at public universities. Second, the Brazilian experience is characterized by the creation of a number of new universities that are attempting to transform the social role of the traditional model of extension programmes to serve local, regional and international development. We contend that as the traditional university approaches to its 1000 the anniversary, it urgently requires a radical transformation.
