About

The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) is a public, research, Ph.D.-granting institution in the University of Texas System. The school was founded in 1914 as the State School of Mines and Metallurgy, and a practice mineshaft survives on the mountainous desert campus. It became Texas Western College of the University of Texas in 1949, and The University of Texas at El Paso in 1967. In 2014, enrollment was 23,079 (19,817 undergraduate and 3,262 graduate students). It is the largest university in the U.S. with a majority Mexican American student population (about 70%). The El Paso, Texas, campus features a one-of-a-kind collection of buildings in the Bhutanese architectural style. Another notable feature is its athletic history. It was the first college in any Southern state in the United States to integrate its intercollegiate sports programs. To this date it is the only school in Texas to bring home an NCAA Men's Basketball Championship, which it achieved in 1966. The movie Glory Road recounts this story.
