A Veteran President’s Laments and Lessons From Three Decades at the Helm
Goldie Blumenstyk, The Chronicle of Higher Education
Diana Natalicio, president of the University of Texas at El Paso, is known for her advocacy on behalf of low-income students. Natalicio, who joined the university in 1971, will be retiring in August. In an era when presidents tend to jump from institution to institution every five or six years, that tenure is remarkable in its own right.
In this interview, Natalicio reflects on her extensive work in higher education, the accomplishments of UTEP, and what her future may hold.
