It has been a busy summer at the BUILDing SCHOLARS Center and at the University. We’ve welcomed new students, wished our graduates good luck, and said “see you in August” to our fellows who traveled to other institutions. The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) also ranked No. 1 in the Brookings Institution Study of U.S. Public Universities out of 342 public universities for “performing well in both research and social mobility.”

Six graduating seniors and their families were recognized on May 6 at the third annual BUILDing SCHOLARS Center Welcome Orientation held at the Tómas Rivera Conference Center on The University of Texas of El Paso (UTEP) campus alongside 20 incoming students selected for the prestigious BUILD biomedical traineeship sponsored by the National Institutes of Health.
