Access and Excellence

UTEP is a nationally ranked public research university dedicated to advancing the El Paso region through education, scholarly and creative production, and human and economic development. The school traces its history back to 1914, when it opened as the State School of Mines and Metallurgy. In the century since then, nearly everything has changed. The school changed names several times, moved location in 1917, united with the El Paso Junior College in 1927, expanded rapidly after World War II, and earned national attention in 1966 when its team of all-black starting basketball players beat an all-white Kentucky team for the NCAA championship. Over the past 30 years, the University has expanded its facilities and strengthened its research capacities while continuing to serve students of the Paso del Norte region. In 2014, UTEP ranked #8 overall among national research universities and #1 in fostering social mobility among its students.
