El Paso Community College (EPCC) is committed investing in students’ futures by providing high quality and affordable education opportunities for our region. With globalized economies and emerging technologies changing both the education and employment landscape, in 2012 EPCC embarked on a master planning process to ensure success for students, community and the institution, for years to come. The initial phases of this plan have been completed.
EPCC campuses are an investment in students and the community. By developing state-of-the-art facilities, EPCC prepares students for future academic growth or entry into the workforce. Inside these spaces students engage in hands-on learning experiences, are able to interact with one another and with professors who are leading experts in their fields.
EPCC funded most of these critical projects through Combined Fee Revenue Bonds issued by EPCC in 2016, the $115 million dollar project will be repaid annually by tuition and general use fees, not taxpayers. EPCC has only requested taxpayer funded bonds once, in 1971. For decades, EPCC has had the lowest tax rate of all major taxing entities and remains committed to providing a high-quality education at an affordable price.
