A Conversation with UTEP President Diana Natalicio and Texas Tribune’s Evan Smith

UTEP President Natalicio takes the stage for a one-on-one lunchtime conversation with Evan Smith, CEO and Editor-in-chief of the Texas Tribune. Their talk began with the President remembering her goal of initiating a change of attitude when she took up leadership of the University in 1988, which Smith referred to as a “vastly different institution” from what it is now.

The two went on to discuss how UTEP and El Paso as a whole have since broken many negative trends as compared to the rest of the state.
