The EPCC-UTEP Humanities Collaborative is a partnership between El Paso Community College (EPCC) and the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) to work together to strengthen existing ties between the two institutions, to engage in collaborative mentoring of students and faculty across the institutions in humanities research and teaching, and to raise the profile of the humanities in our border region through innovative, student and faculty driven humanities programming. An important outcome of the grant will be an increased flow of humanities students through both institutions. The EPCC-UTEP Humanities Collaborative is supported through a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
The Humanities Collaborative at EPCC-UTEP
Mellon Faculty Fellows
EPCC faculty have the opportunity to apply for one-year fellowships to expand their research and public humanities and arts programming, collaborate with their UTEP colleagues, and mentor students interested in academic and professional opportunities in the humanities.
Mellon Student Fellows
EPCC students have the opportunity to apply for two student work positions as Mellon Fellows. The positions, Student Research Assistants and Community Interns, will help students gain academic and professional experience and work closely with a mentor, either faculty or a professional in the field.
