Regional Champions

The Regional Champion Program is built upon the principles and goals of the XSEDE Champion Program. The Regional Champion network will facilitate education and training opportunities for researchers, faculty, students and staff in their region that help them make effective use of local, regional and national digital resources and services. Additionally, the Regional Champion Program will provide oversight and assistance in a predefined geographical region to ensure that all Champions in that region receive the information and assistance they require, as well as establish a bi-directional conduit between Champions in the region and the XSEDE champion staff thus ensuring a more efficient dissemination of information allowing finer grained support. Finally, the Regional Champions will act as a regional point of contact and coordination to assist in scaling up the Champion program by working with the champion staff to coordinate and identify areas of opportunity for expanding outreach to the user community.
 
Regional Champions are coordinated by Jeff Pummill.
