Join Us for a Series of Cybersecurity Workshops

The Minority Serving – Cyberinfrastructure Consortium (MS-CC) and Internet2, in collaboration with the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC), are organizing a series of cyberinfrastructure (IT for research) and cybersecurity workshops on the campuses of historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and tribal colleges and universities (TCUs).

CI Plan Community of Practice

As an outcome of the Minority Serving – Cyberinfrastructure Consortium’s (MS-CC) Cyberinfrastructure (CI) 101 webinar series, we will begin hosting a CI Plan Community of Practice for IT leaders, staff, faculty, and/or others leading, interested in, or contributing to the development of Cyberinfrastructure Plan documents for their campus. Discussion content will be decided by and for participants who join regular community discussions, with logistical support and community coordination provided by the MS-CC.

The CI Plan Community will gather on the third Tuesday of each month on Zoom from 12-1 p.m. E.T. The first gathering on May 16 supported a community brainstorming session to prioritize discussion topics for subsequent gatherings.

Zoom details will be distributed via email to the MS-CC mailing list. Not an MS-CC participant? Joining the MS-CC as a participant is simple, quick, easy – and free!
