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 23,922 students, UTEP is a member of The University of Texas System ( www.utsystem.edu). It serves its primary constituency--residents of far west Texas, southern New Mexico, and northern Mexico—with 72 undergraduate programs, 74 master’s programs, 21 doctoral degree programs, and a growing portfolio of online degrees. With an 80% Hispanic student population— and an additional 5% from Mexico—UTEP proudly reflects the demographic composition of the binational region from which it draws 90% of its students.
