UTEP’s Natalicio Recovering at Home; “Profoundly Moved” by Outpouring of Concern

Making continued progress, UTEP President Diana Natalicio returned home Thursday to complete her recovery following hospitalization last week.

“I am deeply grateful to UTEP Police Officer Bion Bell and City of El Paso EMS personnel for their quick and skillful response to my emergency,” said President Natalicio. “I also greatly appreciated the expert recovery care I received from the dedicated health professionals at The Hospitals of Providence Memorial Campus —nearly all of whom are UTEP graduates.”

She added, “It has been profoundly moving to receive so many sincere expressions of concern and affection from members of the extended UTEP family, and I thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes. Go Miners!”

It was welcome news, nearly two weeks after her shocking collapse on campus.  Natalicio was walking to the Student Union to vote, when she collapsed.

Diana Natalicio became UTEP’s first woman president in 1988 and is today the longest-serving still sitting president of a major public research university in the United States.
