Talented students / Enriching experiences / Lifelong success
Students enter UTEP with many talents, great strengths, and big dreams. The UTEP Edge is a framework that aims to develop these assets through High-Impact Practices, or Edge Experiences, that are made possible by the expertise and dedication of our faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners.
Ranging from research and civic engagement to study abroad and student employment, Edge Experiences increase confidence, enhance personal and professional skills, and equip students with a competitive advantage when they graduate and enter the workforce or pursue a graduate degree.
It’s this competitive edge that distinguishes UTEP students from their peers at other institutions and prepares our graduates for leadership and lifelong success.
