The University Council of URACCAN decreed three days of mourning in the university community for the physical departure of its Secretary General Dr. Cyril Omeir Green, who died in the early hours of Tuesday, leaving an important legacy in the consolidation of intercultural community higher education.

The CUU as the highest body of institutional decision-making also ordered the flag of the university in all campuses and extensions, while sharing, its displays of condolences with the grieving family, "especially with their sons and daughters, and remains of relatives".

For her part, the rector Dr. Alta Hooker in her message of condolences stressed that Dr. Omeir was a fighting man who dreamed and contributed to the construction of a prosperous, sustainable Caribbean Coast, radiated by the spirituality and ancestral knowledge of the peoples. Proud of his identity, his Afro-descendant origin and being Caribbean.

"He always believed that the intercultural community educational model of this institution, is the great opportunity to contribute to the consolidation of Regional Autonomy, and with this conviction participated in the Association of URACCAN, made up of remarkable women and men, which gave rise to what we are today as an Intercultural Community University," she added.

The rector emphasized that Dr. Omeir "his time in this world leaves us many lessons in humanism and above all, great reasons to continue the fabric of interculturality, good living and recognition of cultural diversity. In the midst of his departure to another plane of life, we thank him for sowing that seed of knowledge, in the articulation of knowledge."

"Dear Doctor, we say resigned to you, accompanying you in the distance with songs and prayers, as part of our spirituality, remembering the good moments shared," he said.

Finally, the rector assured "that in the midst of this mourning we share with her that her legacy, experiences and words will continue in the present and future generations."
