UTEP Athletics Mission Statement
The University of Texas at El Paso's Athletics program is rich in tradition. This tradition of excellence spans more than seventy years with the opening of the University in 1914. During this time, UTEP Athletics has earned twenty-two National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) National Championships. One of the most noteworthy national championships was the 1966 Men's Basketball Championship over powerhouse Kentucky.
Today like their predecessors, UTEP student-athletes, coaches and administration are proud of this successful past and are committed to achieving excellence in all facets of Division I NCAA Intercollegiate Athletics. Each year, close to 300 quality young men and women representing 16 different athletic programs strive for excellence in the classroom, in competition and in leadership through service to the surrounding community. Together with your assistance, UTEP Athletics can continue to touch the lives of many Miner fans and mold the futures of our greatest asset, our student-athletes.
Our greatest challenge in continuing to build a successful broad-based athletic program is providing a base of funding that equals other Conference USA members. Presently, the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics receives no financial assistance from the state of Texas. Your support of Miner Athletics helps to ensure moneys for needed athletic scholarships and facility upgrades. When you contribute to Miner Athletics, you are supporting a first-class institution and the young men and women who are proud to wear the orange and blue. In advance, we thank you for your consideration and willingness to assure the future success of Miner Athletics.
Miner Athletic Club Mission Statement
The Miner Athletic Club (MAC) is comprised of alumni, friends, parents, and former student-athletes that have made a commitment to UTEP Athletics financially through season ticket donations and donations to the Miner Athletic Club over and above season tickets in addition to volunteering their time. They are men, women, children, alumni, and friends of the UTEP Athletic Family. They are members of the UTEP Athletic Family bound by a common purpose; to provide financial support to talented and deserving young men and women who represent The University of Texas at El Paso academically, athletically and in the community.
The goal of this year's Miner Athletic Club Team Fund Drive is to increase the base support for the UTEP student-athlete scholarship fund as well as increase the season ticket base for UTEP Football and Men and Women's Basketball. We can only accomplish this by increasing current MAC membership, adding new MAC members and/or adding new season ticket holders for UTEP Football and Men and Women's Basketball.
The Miner Athletic Club is integral to the success of UTEP's Intercollegiate Athletics Program and to the success of its student-athletes, both academically and athletically. Today, the Miner Athletic Club is a primary reason why The University of Texas at El Paso has established itself as one of the premier NCAA Division I athletic programs in the nation.
