UTEP, EPCC partner with Hope Center, launch “Real Price of College” Initiative

With confusion over college prices making it hard for students to earn college degrees, the University of Texas at El Paso and El Paso Community College are partnering with four other Texas colleges and a national organization to help resolve this issue. 

The initiative is being launched by the Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice, a nonprofit research center focused on rethinking and restructuring higher education.

Supported with a $650,000 18-month grant from Lumina Foundation, the project will help six Texas colleges and universities develop better ways to determine students’ financial need, provide more accurate estimates of cost of attendance, and improve communications related to financial need and price for students, their families, and institutional stakeholders.

“Our work demonstrates that when students don’t know what college really costs, they have trouble making ends meet, even falling short on money for food and housing,” offered Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab, Founding Director of the Hope Center.

“Community colleges and public universities are also dealing with their own budget crunches; we hope this project will help them identify cost-effective ways to help students.”

The project’s aim is to help the participating institutions develop enhanced ways to determine students’ financial need, provide more accurate estimates of cost of attendance, and improve communications related to financial need and price for students, their families and institutional stakeholders.

“Participation in this exciting new initiative reflects UTEP’s long-standing commitment to college affordability and access to quality educational opportunities,” said Gary Edens, Ed.D., UTEP vice president for student affairs. “We are pleased to add our voice and leadership to this important national discussion.”

UTEP will take part in the initiative with El Paso Community College, Amarillo College, West Texas A&M University, Dallas Community College District, and San Jacinto College.

The participating colleges will re-evaluate two components of the financial aid formula –  the cost of attendance and the expected family contribution (EFC) – and will develop tools to help colleges and universities utilize the information gathered.

Sara Goldrick-Rab, Ph.D., a professor of higher education policy and sociology at Temple University, founded the Hope Center.  She visited the UTEP campus to discuss research and advocacy for low-income students in 2018.

“Our work demonstrates that when students don’t know what college really costs, they have trouble making ends meet, even falling short on money for food and housing,” Goldrick-Rab said. “Community colleges and public universities are also dealing with their own budget crunches; we hope this project will help them identify cost-effective ways to help students.”

“We can’t effectively address affordability if we can’t accurately and reliably understand costs and need,” says Jesse O’Connell, Strategy Director for Federal Policy at Lumina. “This initiative presents a timely opportunity to work with institutions and support students in an effort to bridge that gap, while also informing policy at a critical moment for higher education.”

This project is especially important as federal policymakers consider better ways to assess and report on student need. Working within existing federal frameworks, the Hope Center team will implement and test ideas first outlined in work from Dr. Goldrick-Rab, including her book Paying the Price and a report issued by The Century Foundation.

Additionally, leading financial aid researchers Dr. Robert Kelchen of Seton Hall University, Dr. Douglas Webber of Temple University and Derek Price of DVP-Praxis will lend their collective expertise to this effort.

The Hope Center’s project team includes Managing Director and Director of Research Dr. Christine Baker-Smith, Research Associate Dr. Tiffani Williams, and Senior Practitioner-Researcher Edward Conroy (a former financial aid practitioner).

The project will last 18 months.

Participants include:

  • El Paso Community College
  • Amarillo College
  • West Texas A&M University
  • University of Texas-El Paso
  • Dallas County Community College District
  • San Jacinto College

50 Years of Excellence Celebrated at EPCC Gala

Friday night, El Paso Community College (EPCC) celebrated its 50th anniversary with a gala attended by more than 400 education, business and industry partners and community leaders as well as distinguished members of its past and present student body and staff.

The event celebrated the institution’s legacy and its vision for building the future.

“EPCC has a long history of excellence,” Keri Moe, 50th Anniversary Co-Chair and Associate Vice President of External Relations, Communication & Development said. “This gala honors the great work that has been done and renews EPCC’s commitment to continuing that legacy.”

EPCC was honored with the attendance of Former Texas State Senator Joe Christie who spearheaded the formation of the college in the late-1960s and secured the funding to establish the college. “Every time I comeback to El Paso, I am amazed at the growth of El Paso Community College,” Christie said. “I feel it was the most important event of my legislative career.”

On June 28, 1969, the voters of El Paso County passed the ballot item that created EPCC and formed its first Board of Trustee chaired by prominent businessman Joe Foster.

In the fall of 1971, the first class of 901 students began a path that over one million have taken since. Today, more than 80,000 graduates have received associate degrees or workforce certifications.

“Honoring the past at El Paso Community College is really looking at the legacy of the institution. We have a history of strong community leaders who were determined to ensure individuals in our community had access to a community college, visionary trustees and past-presidents along with faculty and staff who have built a solid foundation so we can help students achieve their dreams and strengthen our community,” EPCC President Dr. William Serrata said. “EPCC has reached great heights because of a supportive community, dedicated staff and committed students.”

During the past 50 years, EPCC has become a nationally recognized institution of higher learning. EPCC just received the Seal of Excelencia by Excelencia in Education for promotion of equity and college completion for Latino students.

Since 2006, Hispanic Outlook on Education magazine has consecutively recognized the college as the #1 grantor of associate degrees to Hispanics in the nation.

In 2015, EPCC was named one of the Top 10 Community College’s in the Nation by the Aspen Institute. In 2016, the college received the prestigious Award of Excellence for Student Success from the American Association of Community Colleges.

UTEP, EPCC earn inaugural ‘Seal of Excelencia’ for commitment to Latino students

Thursday afternoon, officials with the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and El Paso Community College (EPCC) announced that each institution was honored by Washington, D.C.-based Excelencia in Education, with the inaugural ‘Seal of Excelencia.’

UTEP and EPCC were two of nine institutions of higher education to earn that certification based on their high level of commitment to serve Latino students.

“We are very pleased to be recognized by Excelencia in Education with the inaugural Seal of Excelencia,” UTEP President Diana Natalicio said. “The University of Texas at El Paso’s greatest achievement has been to demonstrate success in delivering both access and educational excellence to a predominantly Hispanic student population from a broad range of backgrounds and limited financial means….the Seal of Excelencia validates not only the success of our work, but the growing national recognition of the model we’ve developed.”

The Seal is a prestigious, voluntary, and comprehensive certification recognizing an institution’s commitment and ability to successfully serve Latino students.

“El Paso Community College (EPCC) has a laser-focus on student success. We are proud of our efforts to both increase the number of Latino students enrolling in college but also to increase the number of Latino students completing their degrees, many of whom are the first in their family to graduate from college,” EPCC President Dr. William Serrata said. “Receiving the Seal of Excelencia is an honor that is testament to EPCC’s commitment to advancing student achievement and ultimately serving the country by helping this fastest growing population, also underrepresented in higher education, receive the degrees and certificates that they need to be successful in our community, our state, and in this nation.”

“Serving Latino students is central to all that we do as a regional research university,” said Gary Edens, Ed.D., UTEP’s vice president for student affairs. “But even before they step on campus, we have to recognize and address the issues that have the potential to derail our students’ educational careers.”

Edens said the creation of the El Paso Collaborative for Academic Excellence, a group of academic, business and civic partners that includes UTEP, EPCC, Region 19 Education Service Center, the region’s biggest school districts, and local civic and business organizations, has had a major impact on how UTEP’s Latino students are served.

“Working together and building a sense of trust in the community has really helped us better understand the students we serve,” Edens said. “When we have that understanding, we are able to implement programs that truly support them as they continue their education through the University.”

The seal is part of Excelencia in Education’s strategy to close the education equity gap, accelerate the number of Latino students who attain college degrees by 2030, and ensure America’s future through the promotion of more high-quality educational opportunities.

“At Excelencia, we know that institutions and communities that intentionally measure their postsecondary Latino student success and use evidence-based practices both serve these students well and serve as catalysts for substantive, positive change in public policy,” said Sarita Brown, president of Excelencia in Education.

“Through the seal certification process, we provide a platform for colleges and universities to reflect on their current impact, practices and policies, and implement new and better ones that respond to Latino students’ realities. Ultimately this serves all students.”

To earn the seal, institutions needed to demonstrate significant strides in three key areas that Excelencia identified as critical to support Latino student success: data, practice and leadership.

“Having a higher education is vital to succeed in today’s global economy,” said Deborah Santiago, Excelencia in Education’s CEO. “If institutions aren’t effectively serving our Latino students, we lose a vital source of talent for our workforce and civic leadership. Institutions that strive for and most particularly those that earn the seal have demonstrated their capacity to grow our country’s highly skilled workforce and develop leaders – in other words, these institutions are ensuring America’s future.”

Excelencia in Education also recognized Arizona State University, California State University Channel Islands, Florida International University, Grand Valley State University (Michigan), the University of Arizona and two other Texas institutions: Austin Community College and South Texas College in McAllen.

The organization acknowledged the schools during a ceremony Thursday, June 20, 2019, in the nation’s capital.
