School of the Month
To connect ETV-eligible youth with one of the dozens of top quality colleges, universities, or vocational/career schools across Texas, we'll highlight an ETV SCHOOL OF THE MONTH.
September 2017: The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP)
VISION, MISSION AND GOALS: The University of Texas at El Paso commits itself to providing quality higher education to a diverse student population. Classified as a Doctoral/Research-Intensive university, UTEP seeks to extend the greatest possible educational access to a region which has been geographically isolated with limited economic and educational opportunities for many of its people. The University will ensure that its graduates obtain the best education possible, one which is equal, and in some respects superior, to that of other institutions, so that UTEP's graduates will be competitive in the global marketplace. UTEP also envisions capitalizing on its bi-national location to create and maintain multicultural, inter-American educational and research collaborations among students, faculty, institutions, and industries, especially in northern Mexico.
The UTEP community: faculty, students, staff, and administrators - commits itself to the two ideals of excellence and access. In addition, the University accepts a strict standard of accountability for institutional effectiveness as it educates students who will be the leaders of the 21st century. Through the accomplishment of its mission and goals via continuous improvement, UTEP aspires to be an educational leader in a changing economic, technological, and social environment: a new model for Texas higher education.
Degrees Offered at UTEP:
UTEP offers various Bachelor degrees, Certificate programs, Minors and Pre-Degrees
