Introducing Minority Serving - Cyberinfrastructure Consortium. Where Strength in Numbers and Power of Community is Present.
DescriptionThe Minority Serving - Cyberinfrastructure Consortium (MS-CC) is a coalition of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), and the broader community of Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) working together to ensure our institutions have the technology, resources, and funding needed to set our students and faculty up for success. We want to discuss how to bolster research; improve faculty and student morale; and ensure researchers from HBCUs, TCUs, HSIs, and the broader community of MSIs contributing to and collaborating on a national and global research level.
To support those goals, we focus on Campus IT and research. IT for research is about having the right technology and tools, as well as training and retaining your IT workforce. MS-CC is committed to expanding and improving research computing infrastructures to institutions with minority-serving missions. We aim to promote research conducted at the campus level and foster collaborations between institutions.An additional focus has been in the development of academic research science drivers The MS-CC in partnership with Internet2 received over $20.5M in funding from the National Science Foundation to support this vision (OAC awards #2137123 and #2234326).
Please join two members from the MS-CC Leadership Council to learn more about the MS-CC’s work in supporting students and faculty by ensuring their access to the tools and resources they need to pursue and achieve their research aspirations.
