The Global Reach Community (GRC) is comprised of faculty and staff interested in extending UTEP’s presence and impact in global research and education. We seek to share experiences and information, develop partnerships on and off campus, identify and strengthen institutional support, increase global understanding among students through experiential learning, and extend the meaning of community engagement.


We aspire to advance UTEP's commitment to scholarly and creative activities by institutionalizing best practices in extending our global reach to enhance student learning, promote faculty development, and support research partnerships.
