MARCHANTE CASTELLANOS, Pilar; MERCHAN GONZALEZ, Francisco  and  GONZALEZ ATA, Amelie. Pharmacy studies in Cuba from the 1921-1922 academic course to the 1924-1925 course. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2013, vol.47, n.3, pp.408-420. ISSN 0034-7515.

The third decade of the 20th century witnessed historical events in Havana University. The first one took place at the end of 1921 when the university students hindered the approval of granting honorary titles that would damage the prestige of the institution. The following year was the beginning of the student´s struggle against the irregularities observed in the university, which reflected the corruption that had gradually taken the country over since the very inception of the Republic in 1902. The students persistently demanded the application of a deep reform in the higher education and the approval of the university autonomy. They also claimed for the purging of the faculty by denouncing the shameful attitudes of some professors or their lack of capacity to teaching. In December, 1922, there took place the setting up of the Directory of the Federation of Students at Havana University, an organization that played a leading role in the struggle for meeting the above-mentioned demands. The main events occurred at Havana University and at the School of Pharmacy from the 1921-1922 academic course through the 1924-1925 course, in addition to several academic pieces of information about the School of Pharmacy, including that related to allegations put forward by the Directory against one of the professors, were all presented in this article.
