The changes that have taken place in the policies and
practices of educational welfare in Portuguese higher education in the last
thirty years have played a determining role in the democratization of this
level of teaching.
Despite its relevance, there have been few studies into this subject. This work attempts to describe the higher education welfare system, focusing on the University of Coimbra. Beginning with a survey of the historical development of the educational welfare system and the principles and policies that guided it, it seeks to describe the current situation of the Welfare Services at the University of Coimbra (SASUC), illustrated by a description of its sectors, the awarding of direct and indirect support to students. Its development is also described using press cuttings.
The aim is to contribute to the construction of a memory common to all those that have participated in this domain, of use to anyone that is interested in the subject.
