-Provides parents with a supporting role in the
education of their children and a forum for networking with other parents.
-Takes an active role in promoting the institution's excellence programs and services that best meet the needs of UTEP students and their families. Working together, UTEP and the Parents Association aim to:

-Support the academic community at UTEP
-Cultivate and recruit new students and families to join the Miner Nation at UTEP.
