Chapter 13: Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara and UNICO
The Hispanic Research Center works closely with other institutions and projects.
Dr. Luis Garibay, Rector of Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara leads the procession, in full academic regalia. I follow him and then the rest of the procession.
As the ceremonies began, I was asked to sit away from the rest of the group.
Me, addressing the audience….in Spanish of course! I congratulated Dr. Garibay for founding the first community college in Mexico: Universidad de la Comunidad--UNICO.
Dr. Garibay presented me with an official document, naming me “professor honorario” of Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara.
Lic. José Luís Arreguín and Ricardo Beltrán Ruíz chat with me at Dr. Garibay’s home.
