Crucial Input Needed - Please Volunteer

Dear Colleagues,

As you are all aware, there is an ongoing effort to improve the research ecosystem at GW. Volunteers are now being sought for the second phase of this faculty-driven process. I would urge you to reach out to us at to volunteer for, or suggest someone for, one of the following committees:

1) Workforce Development
2) Operation and Utilization of Shared Facilities
3) Resource Allocation
4) Big Data and High Performance Computing Infrastructure

As the largest school at GW, it is vital that we have input in all of these areas, but, to date, we only have very few CCAS faculty volunteers. Please reach out to us by Friday August 30th. We really appreciate your willingness to serve in this crucial capacity.

I wish you all a productive and smooth beginning to the semester!

Best wishes,

Evie Downie
