El Paso, Texas – To honor both UTEP’s coming Centennial Celebration and current Homecoming festivities, the Center for History Teaching & Learning is pleased to announce a new web page containing resources for learning more about UTEP’s history.

The “Resources on UTEP History” page provides quick tips for learning the basics of UTEP history as well as links to relevant reading, archives, and museums. The page also provides access to several primary sources on UTEP’s history, such as transcripts of interviews with faculty and alumni, past editions of The Prospector and alumni magazines, and previous school catalogs. Resources will be added continually over the next near as the University digitizes additional records.

The page will be a valuable resource for students, faculty, alumni, and friends of the University who want to learn more about UTEP’s history and its connections with the Paso del Norte region and the state of Texas.

The Center for History Teaching & Learning is a division of UTEP’s History Department created to promote scholarly teaching among department faculty, support teacher education among our students, and provide outreach and professional development opportunities for area social studies teachers.
