As of Monday, UTEP officials have not released the details of UTEP President Diana Natalicio’s health, although they said she is in stable condition.

UTEP Executive Vice President Richard Adauto released a statement Monday saying, “Dr. Natalicio is expected to make a full recovery and is resting comfortably at this time.”

On Thursday, Feb. 18, at approximately 1:30 p.m., Natalicio was on her way to the student Union Building East building to vote on the presidential primaries when she collapsed.

At the time, Adauto released a statement saying that Natalicio was in stable condition at a local hospital.

On Saturday, ABC-7 reported that she continues to undergo medical evaluation.

Freshman pre-nursing major Nadia Ornelas and her sister, senior multidisciplinary studies major Leda Roacho, were walking from the Education Building when they saw the medics helping someone who was on the ground.

“I didn’t see when the incident happened, but my older sister and I were walking out from the Education Building when there were already medics on the site, it was a peaceful atmosphere, looked well under control, many kids around just watching,” Ornelas said.

When asked for further information on Natalicio’s health and when she is expected back at the university, UTEP officials responded by saying, “There is no additional information available at this time.”
