Campus Champions

The Campus Champions program was created to identify and support campus representatives who serve as the local source of knowledge on high-performance computing opportunities and resources within XSEDE, empowering local researchers and educators to advance scientific discovery. Since the program's inception in 2008 it has become an integral component of the XSEDE project's growth and continued success, and the Campus Champion community has grown to more than 200 highly motivated and talented campus volunteers.

In their role as HPC facilitators to local researchers, Campus Champions undertake a broad array of responsibilities including:

  • providing information on XSEDE and cyberinfrastructure resources to researchers and educators on their campus
  • assisting campus users to quickly receive start-up allocations of computing time on XSEDE systems
  • being an ombudsperson, on behalf of the campus users of XSEDE, to capture information on problems and challenges that need to be addressed by XSEDE
  • hosting training workshops on their campus about the use of XSEDE resources and services

Through these duties Campus Champions establish strong partnerships among campus users and XSEDE Service Providers, facilitating multiple avenues for support and advocacy.

Please note that the Champions Dinner is only open to current XSEDE Campus Champions and select guests determined by the Campus Champions organizing committee.
