The National Science Foundation is funding the workshops as part of their recent Cyberinfrastructure Center of Excellence Demonstration Pilot award (NSF #2137123).
The next workshop in the series will take place August 17-18, 2022, at Salish Kootenai College in Pablo, Mont. More information about the upcoming workshop at Salish Kootenai College:
- Chief information officers and IT directors, along with IT and cybersecurity staff from TCUs are encouraged to attend.

Additional workshops are planned for the remainder of 2022 and will be taking place at Claflin University in Orangeburg, SC, and Jackson State University in Jackson, MS.
