Jerry L. Jordan received an Honorary Doctoral Degree in Social Sciences from Universidad Francisco Marroquín in recognition his contribution to the implementation of economic and liberal policies, his studies in the monetary and financial sector, and his disseminating the consequences of economic intervention.

Jordan addressed words of congratulations to graduates and also talked about the future of liberty and the importance of continuing pursuing it as Ronald Reagan said: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” Finally, he encourages to continue spreading the ideas learned at Universidad Francisco Marroquín and to enjoy the increasing prosperity created by free people.
