Established Year: 2011

The UTEP Young Alumni Network is UTEP's premiere young alumni networking group, designed for recent grads who are looking to meet new people and strengthen the Miner Nation.

The Mission of the Network shall be:

1.  To support the activities of The University of Texas at El Paso toward the realization of its mission, as well as financial and educational programs in every manner possible;

2.  To establish and promote goals and projects which tend to strengthen the ties between the Network members and their community, the Association, and the University;

3.  To unite those individuals who are interested in the future progress of the University while advancing the interest of the members of the Young Alumni Network and the support for professional development;

4.  To pledge a personal commitment to The University, the Association, and the Network by supporting a culture of philanthropy and encouraging others in that effort;

5.  To enable advocates of the University and the Association by spreading news and Miner spirit, encourage higher education advocacy, and encourage event attendance.

We also have a lot of fun while we network, with events such as:
Happy Hours
Tailgates/viewing parties
Educational events
Social events

Lastly, we keep you in touch with all of the interesting things going on in and around UTEP. Consider the UTEP Young Alumni Network as your hub for everything that interests recent graduates! If you would like to receive text alerts from us, please text utepyan to 84483.
