I think you're ridiculous. Yes they should suck it up. Not everyone speaks with the same El Paso accent, and maybe the professors aren't the problem, but the students are. At most tier-1 universities, professors are from a wide range of countries, and vary with their accents of the English language. UTEP might be trying to get the best professors for their students from around the globe, yet they go off complaing about something as minor as an accent. How ridiculous, and narrow-minded is that?
