Mission and Vision


In addition to offering Liberal Arts majors and minors high quality undergraduate and graduate degree programs, the College of Liberal Arts is committed to providing excellent educational opportunities to all UTEP students. College faculty are dedicated to providing students with access to intellectually stimulating instruction and creative activities in the humanities, social and behavioral sciences, and the arts.

The College of Liberal Arts will continuously develop individual and collaborative scholarly research projects and creative programs that positively contribute to the academic life of the College and enhance the lives of UTEP students, faculty, staff and the general public.

The faculty are also committed to capitalizing on the scholarly opportunities presented by our bi-national, multicultural region, but will not restrict focus to issues that are only of regional concern.  Rather, the faculty are dedicated to drawing on the unique characteristics of the El Paso region and population that offers many opportunities for exciting bi-national and multicultural creative activities and can serve as a "natural laboratory" for advancing scholarly research that is of national and international significance.
