UTEP’s Community of Engaged Scholars (CES) is made up of faculty members and community leaders who are actively involved with the scholarship of engagement, which includes teaching, research, and/or service activities. Housed within UTEP’s Center for Community Engagement (CCE), the CES offers a networking base that helps connect faculty and students with community partners to conduct enhanced student learning and research activities aimed at serving the Paso Del Norte region.
