Get Involved

There are many ways you can get involved. You can volunteer your time, talent, join an events committee or simply attend network activities. The possibilities are endless. Through this network, we support our fellow alumni and current UTEP students to ensure that an alumni voice is present in University policies and practices in the interest of UTEP.

As a network, we support the overall enrichment of UTEP, its students, faculty, staff, and the community by supporting the University's mission to achieve Tier One status as a nationally recognized institution of learning and research.
As a network, we join with other Miners to professionally network, socialize, and watch Miners sporting events and support the University.
As a UTEP alum, you can participate in network events, help raise funds for scholarships, and serve as a mentor to both prospective and current UTEP Miners.
Your support of this effort is the key to building a community for UTEP alumni through Networks.

Join the UTEP Alumni in DFW for a night of basketball
Pre-Game Block Party 1 hour prior to Tip-Off


Let’s get together for basketball when the Dallas Wings play against Phoenix Mercury on Saturday, July 20 at College Park Center (600 S. Center St.) in Arlington. Our very own UTEP alumna Kayla Thornton is a roster lead! In her college years, she played with the UTEP Miners, where she garnered multiple all-league accolades. She’s signed with the Dallas Wings since 2017, where she plays as Forward with the number 6.

We’ll have a block party outside the center for the whole family to enjoy an hour before the game starts.
