The UTEP Mine Tracker is a co-curricular initiative that serves as a student’s roadmap to success. The Mine Tracker enables registered UTEP students to access co-curricular activities that compliment what a student is learning in the classroom. Engagement in the UTEP Mine Tracker assists students in being more prepared for the ever-changing global market and become more competitive in the world of work and graduate studies.
The suggested activities for the UTEP Mine Tracker are divided into four learning dimensions; Career Development, Civic Engagement, Global Perspective and Personal Enrichment. Each of the dimensions has three levels of engagement; Entering Student Stage, Engagement Stage and the Leadership Stage. The curriculum works as a guide to direct students along the path of student success. A student’s progress through the stages is tracked and displayed on a personal progress screen which can then be printed on behalf of the University as a Co-curricular Transcript. Students who complete the entire curriculum will receive recognition for their achievement upon graduation from UTEP.
The goal of the Career Development experience is to have the ability to enter and succeed within the world of work. Career Development activities offer students the opportunity to develop skills that are useful in the workplace. These activities will help clarify career interests and provide occasions for growth and application of one’s talents. Activities associated with the Career Development Learning Dimension include:
