Year 2019 Spring
UTEP hosted its first practicum experience in the Spring of 2019. A total of 7 students were selected from a competitive pool of UTEP graduate students to experience an interactive experience. Each student was assigned a mentor both from the two-year and four-year institutions, which followed a triad mentorship-protégé model. All the selected students were regularly provided with resources and workshops to enhance their practicum experience. The students were provided with a stipend for the practicum experience and were expected to complete a compulsory survey.
