Universidad Federico Henríquez y Carvajal

The UFHEC University, number 28 of the more than fifty institutions of Higher Education in the Dominican Republic, acquires its name at the suggestion of its founder, Dr. Carlos Cornielle, from the Federico Henríquez y Carvajal University UFHEC as a way of imprinting the value of intellectual, patriot and educator of one of the most solid professionals that the country has produced, Federico Henríquez. 

The Sponsoring Foundation of the University is incorporated through Decree No. 544-88 of November 25, 1988. 

A few years later, on February 12, 1991, the Federico Henríquez y Carvajal University, UFHEC, was founded and constituted by decree No.57-91.  

Once the legal personality has been acquired, the University is authorized to issue academic titles with the same scope, force and validity as those issued by official or autonomous higher education institutions of the same category.  

Its founding rector, Dr. Carlos Cornielle, imprinted all the Institutional rigor on the nascent University, conceiving Education as a social phenomenon interdependent with other variables of the social group such as political economy, ideology and culture in general. 

In its beginnings, the university was constituted by its headquarters in Isabel Aguiar Avenue No. 100 in Santo Domingo and its extensions in Puerto Plata, Espaillat-Peravia, Romana and Barahona. As of 1994, the rectory falls to Dr. Margarita Cornielle Mendoza.

Since August 12, 2004, the University has been directed by a board of trustees headed by Dr. William Hunter as president, while appointing the outstanding professional Lic. Alberto Ramírez Cabral as its new rector. 

As of this date (2004), the university is subjected to a general transformation in its aspects of Institutionality, Infrastructure, academic, curricular and student administration. An outstanding aspect is the implementation of new and necessary programs. 

With the design of a general strategic plan, an entire institutional transformation has begun with the theme of “Road to Excellence”, this is how we now speak of institutional philosophy where UFHEC is a learning community based on Christian principles. It is also an academy established to cultivate the sciences, encourage the arts, and promote the most relevant values ​​of culture, based on criteria based on the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  

The University is based on new principles and values, so that the learning experiences it promotes are aimed at developing in its students and graduates the principles and values ​​that underpin their educational work and are aimed at responsibility, solidarity, tolerance, justice, honesty. , service and respect.  

UFHEC University wants to be the university for the most needy and to achieve these goals, a team of professors and researchers work full-time to relaunch the Institution.
