On 21 October, within the celebrations for the 30th anniversary of Universidad Austral, Professors Carlos Ignacio Massini-Correas (Universidad de Mendoza, Argentina) and Eleonore Stump (St Louis University, US) were awarded Honorary Doctorates. This degree is the highest distinction that a university can confer to prestigious scholars with an unquestionable professional, academic and humane reputation.

Dr Claudia Vanney, Director of the Philosophy Institute and promoter of Prof Stump’s degree, read the Eulogy of the New Doctor. In it, she presented Prof Stump’s accomplishments to request her incorporation to the academic community of Universidad Austral as an Honorary Professor, by the award of the Honorary Doctorate. She also fondly recalled Prof Stump’s visit to our institution in 2016.
