Student Champions

Campus Champions programs include Regional, Student, and Domain Champions.

Student Champions

Student Champion volunteer responsibilities may vary from one institution to another and depending on your Campus Champion Mentor. Student Champions may work with their Mentor to provide outreach on campus to help users access the best advanced computing resource that will help them accomplish their research goals, provide training to users on campus, or work on special projects assigned by your Mentor. Student Champions are also encouraged to attend the annual PEARC conference and participate in the PEARC student program as well as submit posters or papers to the conference. 

To join the Student Champions program, the Campus Champion who will be their mentor should send a message to @email to recommend the student for the program and confirm their willingness to be the student's mentor.
