Students are engaged in research beginning at the undergraduate level and have opportunities to work in interdisciplinary teams in state-of-the-art research facilities across the College's three sites.
The College also hosts UTEP's annual Viva La Salud conference, which provides a forum for faculty across the university to present their research in the area of health disparities.
