May 2019 Graduation Candidates
Do you expect to graduate from UTEP this spring, or do you have a friend who will? If so, we want to hear from you!
As the May 2019 Commencement approaches, UTEP’s Office of University Communications would like to hear the success stories of our spring 2019 graduation candidates. These stories may be shared with the local media, posted on UTEP’s website and social media channels, or could be considered for the Commencement ceremony.
We seek graduate and undergraduate candidates with inspiring stories from all majors who have excelled academically and taken advantage of opportunities to enhance their learning, such as internships, study abroad, research, leadership and community engagement. We want to know how the University has assisted you on your academic and personal journeys. We are interested in how you may have overcome adversity to achieve your goals and earn your degree. Are you a first-generation college student, or do you come from a long line of Miners? Lastly, please tell us about your future academic and professional plans.
Please share your story or the story of someone you know in 500 words or less. Include your name, email address and phone number, if you plan to attend Commencement, and your post-graduation plans. Submit nominations to University Communications at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. Friday, March 15, 2019. You may attach a resume.
Please direct any questions to Jenn Crawford, director for communications, at 915-747-7526.
