University of Texas - El Paso
The University of Texas at El Paso has redefined public higher education not only in Texas, but across the nation as the University begins its second century of service to the people of the Paso del Norte region and reaffirms its commitment to an access and excellence mission. Since opening its doors as the Texas State School of Mines and Metallurgy in 1914, UTEP’s geographic location along the U.S.-Mexico border has enabled generations of students to pursue their goals through higher education in one of the largest national communities in the world. Over the past century, the University’s enrolment has grown from 27 mining students to more than 23,000 undergraduate and graduate students, and that number continues to increase each year. UTEP offers a broad array of degree programs – 70 bachelors, 76 masters and 20 doctoral degrees taught by outstanding faculty who have been recognized for their commitment to student success. With more than 80 million in annual research spending, UTEP is dedicated to becoming the first national research university serving a 21st century student demographic. The University’s outstanding record of receiving extremely competitive grant awards reflects the quality of UTEP’s faculty and their sustained commitment to excellence while also maintaining an academic environment dedicated to addressing the educational needs of students – many of whom are the first in their families to attend college. UTEP is situated in the heart of El Paso, a vibrant and urban Texas City. El Paso is the 22nd largest city in the nation, 6th largest in Texas and is the 2nd safest city in the nation. Located along the banks of the Rio Grande, the river that establishes the U.S.- Mexico border, UTEP compliments its surrounding beauty with its unique architecture.
