  • Identify and work with a Point of Contact (POC) at each of the 15 UT institutions who will be the liaison between the UTRC Faculty Outreach Working Group (FOWG) and the faculty at that campus.
  • Inform and educate UT System faculty and administrators at each campus about the UTRC initiative including the associated networking, storage, and computing resources that will be made available to them to facilitate large-scale, data-intensive and computationally-intensive research.
  • Promote and facilitate the use of UTRC resources by faculty and research teams to expand the scope of research, enable collaborations across institutions, and increase competitiveness for funding.
  • Develop educational and promotional literature and attend campus visits that facilitate awareness and the acquisition of skills in the use of UTRC resources.
  • Develop compelling use cases that demonstrate examples of how UTRC resources have been utilized to advance scientific goals.
  • Work with faculty to identify unmet needs and emerging opportunities that can be addressed by UTRC resources.
