Student Champions

Campus Champions programs include Regional, Student, and Domain Champions.


Student Champions

Student Champion volunteer responsibilities may vary from one institution to another and depending on your Mentor. Student Champions may work with their Campus Champion Mentor to provide outreach on campus to help users access the best advanced computing resource that will help them accomplish their research goals, provide training to users on campus, or work on special projects assigned by your Mentor. Student Champions are also encouraged to attend the annual PEARC conference and participate in PEARC student program as well as submit posters or papers to the conference.
