Mission Statement

The mission of the research computing group is to provide leadership in developing, deploying, and operating such an integrated CI to allow CU Boulder to achieve further preeminence as a research university.

Research Computing provides services for researchers that include large-scale computing resources, storage of research data, high-speed data transfer capabilities, and support for data sharing. Additionally, the RC group provides consulting in computational science and data management, and will support grant proposals by partnering or providing letters of support.
