The Support Program for Restructuring and Expansion Plans of the Federal Universities, the Reuni Program, was an action of an educational public policy of the federal government, whose aim was creating the conditions to increase access and permanence in higher education, given the low rate of students in this teaching level. They considered Reuni a historic opportunity for federal universities to plan their own expansion. Due to the dimension it reached, it is natural to have an interest in knowing the impact of the program in the institutions, with the purpose of analyzing the results of the expansion proposed by Reuni, under the aspect of public policy evaluation. The Federal University of Goiás functioned as a locus study, in the period from 2007 to 2013. In order to do so, it was proposed to evaluate the expansion of the University, in the aspects of the number of places and courses offered, evasion rates and idle places occupation; investigate the evolution of the staff chart and infrastructure situation; and examine changes in social guidelines, concerning inclusion and assistance, and their consequences. In this sense, a qualitative, exploratory / descriptive research was carried out through a single case study strategy. For data collection, the study has used document analysis and semi-structured interviews techniques, and the researcher have invited managers who experienced the accession and implementation process of the program to answer open questions. The sources of information were both primary, in the case of interviews, documents of a public nature containing the institutional decisions and visits to organs of the institution, as well as secondary, such as reports, statistical data, news and articles. The guidelines of the Research Ethics Committee (CEP / UFG) were observed, after its approval. For the treatment and interpretation of the data, they used the technique of content analysis. Documentary research and literature review gave the way for acquisition of the indicators for the analysis of the data collected. From the material collected, it was possible to carry out the analysis of the changes that occurred with the implementation of the program. In view of this, there was an increase in vacancies and courses, even at night, making greater the possibility of joining higher education for those students who did not have this chance before, what confirmed social inclusion. It was found that the expansion of public servants included more the category of teachers than the one of technical-administrative, remaining the lack of these. The research work has pointed a necessity of adopting more effectivemeasures in order to reduce evasion rates and increase the idle places occupation. The study has identified a significant growth in the area of infrastructure, what has improved the conditions for the development of academic activities. There was an expressive increase in post-graduation, resulting from the graduation growth. It was found that, in general, the results of the program were positive, allowed unprecedented growth in the University and made its classification better than it was before. Thus, the Reuni Program proved to be an important governmental action, which allowed development and improvement to higher education, which would accredit the adoption of similar future measures, in order to increase this level of education.
