University of Texas at El Paso


To be a model of excellence in providing human resource services to the administration and employees of the University of Texas at El Paso through trust, respect, integrity, and credibility.

The vision held by Human Resources is that in the foreseeable future, the majority of programs at the University of Texas at El Paso will be nationally ranked as a Tier I institution and as a result the university will be considered a premier employer of choice in El Paso and the surrounding Paso Del Norte region.  The University’s reputation will not only be one of academic access and research excellence but will also be a reputation of a destination employer that:

·     Offers a progressive and exciting work environment;

·     Provides equitable and competitive compensation and benefits that support all types of employee needs;

·     Partners with colleges, divisions, and administrative units and their employees to achieve their full potential and to meet goals; and,

·     Assists its employees with finding a sense of well-being and balance between work and home.


Our vision is that members of the university community will attribute the universities success, in part, to the outstanding customer service, efficient systems, and consultative efforts of Human Resources.  We will accomplish this by:

 ·    Celebrating the advantages and opportunities created by a diverse staff;

·     Ensuring our programs, policies, and services are relevant and valued by the campus community;

·     Ensuring the university has a well-trained and competent workforce;

·     Making efficient and maximum use of resources;

·     Making use of state-of-the are technology to communicate and administer programs; and,

·     Offering a competitive and meaningful total rewards package.


Enhance and sustain the foundation for workplace excellence by leading and empowering University employees in the successful administration of human resources.


Requirements for Campus Programs for Minors

The University of Texas Systems has instituted a system-wide policy regarding Criminal Background Checks (CBC) for those employees or volunteers that will be working in summer camps. UTS124 mandates that all employees and volunteers have a completed CBC prior of the start of the camp. For the purpose of these camps, CBCs will be valid for 12 months.

This process is being handled by UTEP’s Human Resource Services (HRS) office. The cost of each CBC will be charged against the account number provided by the Camp Director on the CBC form.
