      Dominican University Grants Honoris Causa Degree to Cuban Scholar

      HAVANA, Cuba, Jul 24 (acn) The Autonomous University of Santo Domingo
      (UASD) granted Cuban intellectual Armando Hart Davalos the Doctor
      Honoris Causa degree.

      Hart Davalos received the honorary degree from the hands of Franklin
      Garcia Fermin, rector of the university in a meeting at the Aula
      Magna of the University of San Geronimo of Havana.

      Garcia Fermin said UASD granted the doctorate to Hart Davalos in
      recognition of his revolutionary lifetime work and his contributions
      to the culture directed to human and social progress.

      After receiving the short cape, the pin and the ring symbolizing the
      title, Hart Davalos dedicated the recognition to the five Cuban
      antiterrorist fighters imprisoned in the US and said that the merit
      went to the Cuban people.

      Hart Davalos proposed to create a working team of experts from UASD,
      the University of Havana, the National Jose Marti Program and the
      Office of the Historian of Havana to research and set up projects
      concerning the region.

      As part of the homage ceremony, Dominican Republic's embassy to Cuba
      presented Hart Davalos with a collection of the Complete Works of
      Latin American thinker Juan Bosch.

      The Autonomous University of Santo Domingo was the first one founded
      in the American continent, by papal bull of Pope Paul III, on October
      28 of 1538 and since then, the center has granted the Doctor Honoris
      Cause title to very few personalities, such as presidents Rafael
      Correa and Evo Morales, of Ecuador and Bolivia, respectively.
