New Pamphlet on UTEP History

By on August 13, 2012

We are pleased to announce the printing of a new pamphlet that briefly describes UTEP’s 100-year history. Layers of History at The University of Texas at El Paso (2012) divides the past century into five “layers” that reflect the growing aspirations of the institution, from a tiny mining school in 1914 to the public research university of today. The main text contains approximately 3,000 words, with sidebars that outline key events in the University’s history. A final section explores the crucial relationship between the University and the Paso del Norte region. The pamphlet is richly illustrated, with photographs from UTEP’s past and a beautiful painting of the current campus.

It is hoped that the pamphlet will assist Centennial planning by giving organizers a sense of the institution’s entire history and by providing a useful outline for organizing exhibits, keepsakes, and other related Centennial items.

Keith A. Erekson served as the Executive Director of UTEP's Centennial Celebration from December 2011 through May 2014. Learn more at
