As the Covid-19 Pandemic and the disruptions as a result continue to echo through the Borderland, officials with UTEP Athletics have launched a program to help the student-athletes and the department hit hard.

“We need you Miners! UTEP student-athletes and the athletic department have been greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic,” officials shared via a news release

“We hope you will choose to support UTEP student-athletes during this difficult time through the Mining 4 Miners Campaign! We have a goal of raising $10,000, and we are more than half way there thanks to support of many.”

New Miner Athletic Club annual fund donors of $50 or more, as well as current donors who increase their annual fund contribution by one giving level or give 10% more than the previous year, will be automatically enrolled in this program.
