It is always exciting when new faculty and staff members join the UTEP family because you bring new inspiration to our campus through your ideas, your initiative and your enthusiasm. We hope you will share this inspiration with your respective departments and divisions, and at the same time, recognize the opportunity to learn from your colleagues through collaboration and mentorship.
New Employee FAQ
The NEW EMPLOYEE FAQ provides quick answers to the some of the most commonly asked questions about payroll, benefits, parking, technology, and teaching. For other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your department or program chair and/or your College Administrative Officer (CAO).
Faculty are required to maintain a profile in the Digital Measures database to satisfy statutory requirements of Texas, and UTEP’s regional accrediting association, The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The Digital Measures database generates the profiles published on the Faculty Profiles website. The Digital Measures website provides guidance on how to initiate and maintain a faculty profile.

Research Start Up Funding
Start-up funds are defined as funds that are committed to a select group of new faculty members at the point of hiring. These funds are meant to assist in obtaining necessary research equipment and/or instrumentation, laboratory supplies, and other items required to initiate a competitive research/scholarly activity that will generate externally funded grants and/or contracts. While these financial resources may be helpful in the development of a new research facility, new faculty members must ensure to abide by the specified policies and procedures.
The links below provide helpful documentation that will explain start-up procedures along with specific constraints surrounding these funds and the responsibilities that need to be met.
