El Paso, TX (UTEP) — What: Forum to receive feedback from students, faculty and staff at The University of Texas at El Paso about proposed tuition and fees for the 2014-15 academic year.
When: 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 9
Where: University Suite, third floor, Union Building East
The University of Texas at El Paso will host a forum to receive input from students, faculty and staff on a tuition and fee proposal for the 2014-15 academic year.
The forum is an opportunity to provide feedback on the proposal and to learn where the revenue would be invested. Gary Edens, Ed.D., vice president for student affairs, will give a presentation. Student Government Association President Paulina Lopez will be present.
Information gathered at the forum will be reviewed by a committee and then incorporated into the committee’s proposal prior to sending it to The University of Texas System Board of Regents for consideration.
Money from tuition and fees is used to attract and retain quality faculty and to develop the best education possible for UTEP students.
UTEP has the lowest “net price” – which is the total cost of attendance minus the average amount of government and University grant and scholarship aid – of all emerging Tier One universities in Texas and the lowest among all national research universities in the United States as classified by the Carnegie Foundation.
The forum is open to the entire campus community. Students, faculty and staff are welcome. After the forum, Edens will answer questions about the proposal.
