The University of Texas at El Paso

The University of Texas at El Paso is forging dramatic new directions in higher education. UTEP has become a national model for creating and successfully executing highly competitive academic and research programs while maintaining a deep commitment to serving a 21st century student demographic. It is this dedication to providing access and excellence to students in its region that has resulted in UTEP becoming the only research-doctoral university in the United States with a Mexican-American majority student population. A Carnegie high-research-activity, urban university enrolling nearly 24,000 students, UTEP serves its primary constituency—residents of far west Texas, southern New Mexico, and northern Mexico—with 167 undergraduate, master’s and doctoral degree programs. With an 80 percent Hispanic student population— and an additional 5 percent from Mexico—UTEP proudly reflects the demographic composition of the binational region from which it draws 90 percent of its students.
