Speaker Series

The Entering Student Experience (ESE) supports UTEP students in their first 45 semester credit hours to build a foundation for their academic excellence and professional success. We foster an inclusive environment to ensure students from diverse backgrounds have a meaningful transition to UTEP. Our five pillars of success include Engagement, Belonging, Agency, Academic Success, and Professional Preparation.

The purpose of the Entering Student Experience Speaker Series is to highlight the foundational pillars of our program though storytelling and professional mentorship from UTEP faculty and staff. The series will give students the opportunity to learn about, reflect upon and apply the five pillars in practical ways pertaining to their personal, academic and professional lives. The series allows for networking and building relationships across campus, disciplines, departments and programs.
