UTEP, Universidad Autónoma de Chihuahua Renew Academic Partnership

On Friday, August 3, officials with the University of Texas at El Paso reaffirmed their longstanding academic partnership with the largest public university in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico.

Top officials from the Universidad Autónoma de Chihuahua (UACH), including Luis Alberto Fierro, the university’s most senior administrator, visited the UTEP campus for a series of talks with the deans of several colleges and a meeting with President Diana Natalicio.

Signed in 1994, the goal of the agreement of cooperation between UTEP and UACH is to promote academic collaboration and to identify professional development opportunities for faculty and students from both institutions.

One of the top items on the agenda for this latest visit, however, was the restructuring process UACH is preparing to undertake. As it looks to revamp its academic and operational model, UACH administrators have expressed great interest in learning more about the UTEP Edge.

The UTEP Edge is a cross-campus culture of student success and empowerment that develops students’ existing assets through high-impact experiences, including undergraduate research, community engagement, study abroad and student employment.

During their visit, UACH officials also met with alumni from that university who are now in leadership roles at UTEP. The group also made stops at the Student Recreation Center and the W.M. Keck Center for 3D Innovation to get a firsthand look at some of the facilities that continue to cement UTEP’s reputation as an institution of excellence across the Paso del Norte region and beyond.

Some of the other topics of discussion included exploring options for dual degree programs, and identifying additional academic exchange opportunities for both faculty and students at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
