Faculty Coordinators

Advocating for the academic side of High-Performance Computing is our four dedicated Faculty Coordinators. Their role is to continuously provide their expertise and feedback and ensure that supercomputing continues to be an open and available resource for everyone in the campus community. Examples of their work include:

  • Meeting weekly with HPC staff to provide input on the direction of High-Performance Computing at UW-Eau Claire
  • Developing user policies to ensure fair and equitable access to computing resources by all parties
  • Coordinating with other departments and outside entities on summer outreach projects
  • Writing and submitting grants to obtain new resources and continue our mission of making computing available to all students, faculty, and staff
