EL PASO, Texas -- Instead of multiple in-person ceremonies, 3,000 graduates participated Saturday in a virtual commencement at the University of Texas at El Paso.

"By virtue of the authority delegated to me, by the Board of Regents of the University of Texas system, I now confer upon each of you the respective academic degree to which you have been recommended," said UTEP President Heather Wilson in the ceremony.
