University of Texas at El Paso

     The University of Texas at El Paso located in one of the largest binational communities in the world, UTEP is unique among research institutions. The University is home to a majority Hispanic student population, many of whom are among the first in their families to attend college.
     UTEP is proud of its multicultural locale and long history of fostering diversity—these characteristics make the campus of more than 22,000 students one of the most friendly and welcoming university settings anywhere.

College History
     Founded in 1914, the Texas State School of Mines and Metallurgy started with a modest population— less than 30 students.
     Ninety-six years later, that figure has grown to 21,011, a phenomenal increase.
     As impressive as the boom in the student population has been, the school—now known as The University of Texas at El Paso—has grown in other meaningful and dramatic ways, including its physical boundaries; the original plot of land, barely big enough for the administration building and a few classrooms, has expanded to 420 acres.
     More importantly, UTEP has become an internationally recognized research and doctoral university, with more than 21,000 students and 89,000 alumni.
     With facilities that have attracted gifted professors from throughout the nation and around the globe—including the Border Biomedical Research Center—the University is striving to attain Tier One status in Texas.
     Famous for its diverse student population, which includes a high percentage of Hispanics from the city and surrounding area, UTEP offers 181 bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees, all of which reflect a quality of education that has led major magazines to praise the University for the success of its business, engineering and health sciences programs.
     Aside from the superb education the University provides, the campus itself is a work of art, with the striking Bhutanese architecture providing a sense of serenity for the students, faculty and staff in the heart of the Chihuahuan Desert.
     The University also boasts one of the most competitive athletic programs in the nation, with Miner athletes having earned top awards in almost every sport. The University has won 25 NCAA Division 1 national team championships, and several athletes have captured Olympic gold medals, including Bob Beamon and Ria Stalman. UTEP, which captured the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship in 1966, is the only university in Texas to have won the title.
