Mission Statement

Broadening Participation will engage under-represented minority researchers from domains and institutions that are not traditional users of advanced computing. Our target audience ranges from potential users with no computational experience to computationally savvy researchers, educators, Campus Champions, and administrators that will promote change at their institutions for increased use of advanced digital services for research and teaching.

Led by Linda Akli (SURA), XSEDE2 will provide awareness activities—conference exhibitions, campus visits, and regional workshops—while increasing national impact through new partnerships such as the Southern Region Education Board Doctoral Scholars Program, the Institute for African-American Mentoring in Computing Sciences, and the Computing Alliance for Hispanic-Serving Institutions. XSEDE2 will aggressively promote the submission of papers at professional societies by XSEDE under-represented users and expand our dissemination partners to include new initiatives such as the IEEE Special Technical Committee on Broadening Participation.

Persistent participation is enabled by curriculum reform and larger numbers of researchers adopting the use of advanced digital resources as standard methods. Collaboration with Campus Engagement (§C.3.3) and Education (§C.3.4.2) will support institutional change and capacity building.
