Campus Champions

In 2018 the University of Maine System became a part of Campus Champions. Campus Champions act as facilitators helping campus members find the best high performance computing related resources for their projects. They may give presentations that outline available HPC resources to interested campus groups or assist with training events.

A Campus Champion is an employee of, or affiliated with, a college or university (or other institution engaged in research), whose role includes helping their institution's researchers, educators, and scholars (faculty, postdocs, graduate students, undergraduates, and professionals) with their computing-intensive and data-intensive research, education, scholarship and/or creative activity, including but not limited to helping them to use advanced digital capabilities to improve, grow and/or accelerate these achievements.

Additional information on the Campus Champions Program is available on their website.

ACCESS is an NSF-funded virtual organization that integrates and coordinates the sharing of advanced digital services - including supercomputers and high-end visualization and data analysis resources - with researchers nationally to support science.

 ACCESS's integrated, comprehensive suite of advanced digital services, combined with other high-end facilities and campus-based resources, serve as the foundation for a national cyber-infrastructure ecosystem.

ACCESS is an advanced computing and data resource supported by the National Science Foundation and made possible through these lead institutions and their partners – Carnegie Mellon University; University of Colorado Boulder; University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; and State University of New York at Buffalo
