In 2007, the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and Victoria University formed a unique partnership to further the social and community objectives for each respective institution. The partnership allows for an exchange of ideas, programs and shared strategies for community engagement. It also creates opportunities for research to be conducted to support community development.
In 2012, this partnership was recognised for innovation in international education by the Institute of International Education. The award was for the learning experiences and opportunities offered to students and staff as a result of this partnership.
In 2016, we welcomed a delegation from UTEP as part of a raft of centenary events and celebrations.
