The present study investigates the quota politics adopted by the Federal University of Goiás (FUG), which contemplates students from public schools, black students from public school, indigenous and maroons. Demarcates as neoliberal adjustment policies developed by the Brazilian government, especially since the 1990s, configure a comprehensive reform in education, especially in higher education. The focus of the research, therefore, is the FUG’s quota program, UFGInclui, seeking to uncover the fundamentals, limits and contradictions of this program and its articulation with the politics of expansion and democratization of access to Brazilian federal universities. Following parameters of qualitative research, this research take place from bibliographic research, documental research and empirical research. The theoretical approach is anchored in analyzes of authors such as Amaral (2004, 2009), Ferreira and Oliveira (2011, 2012), Oliveira (2009), Santos (1999), Sguissardi (2009) and others. Moreover, it is the object of analysis the following documentary corpus: legislation, policies comprising higher education in Brazil and Goiás, the legal orders, resolutions and regulations specific of FUG; statistical data from national research institutions and statistics about the program UFGInclui. The results indicate that several aspects deserve to be the object of intervention aiming to improve the process of democratization of access to higher education at FUG. The study, however, highlights the need of the quota policies in order to ensure access to higher education for historically excluded groups. Recognizes that the program UFGInclui constitutes an improvement in the democratization of access to higher education in Goiás, but evaluates that there is a set of actions to be developed within the university in order to its improvement.
