The National Council for Home Safety and Security has listed The University of Texas at El Paso as one of the Top 100 Safest Colleges in America. UTEP, which is ranked 41, is also placed highest among all University of Texas System institutions. “We are pleased that the National Council for Home Safety and Security has recognized the work we do to keep our campus safe,” said UTEP Police Chief Cliff Walsh. “We are able to sustain a safe environment thanks to the collaboration with UTEP’s students, faculty, and staff, as well as local law enforcement.”

Chief Walsh is the first to credit his team and recognizes how hard they work with their customers to promote campus safety every day.
