Volunteering as a Ninjaneer
Do you want to be a part of something bigger? Then volunteering with the College of Engineering’s volunteer corps called the Ninjaneers is for you. This program aims to engage students in the College of Engineering, UTEP and El Paso communities. All Ninjaneer experiences aim to develop students’ skills that align with The UTEP Edge and meeting the University’s mission through community engagement.Sign Up Here

All volunteer hours are reported monthly to the College’s ESLC as part of the Dean’s Cup competition. If you volunteer as a member of an engineering organization or honor society, your hours will have designation to that organization/honor society. Hours and data are also reported annually to the University’s Community Engagement Council as part of the President’s Honor Roll.
Before you commit to your hour of volunteering, we want to say, “THANK YOU”. Without support from volunteers, most programs wouldn’t be successful or even exist. It is for that reason that reinforcing the importance of volunteering and community engagement is necessary. The following are the Ninjaneer milestones set for students to be recognized for their time supporting the College of Engineering.
- 20 hours – receive a Ninjaneer t-shirt
- 100 hours – receive a Graduation stole
