ignore this ....)



Virtual Residency 2022 Summer Workshop on

There's NO PREREQUISITE other than an interest in helping
researchers with their computing-intensive/data-intensive

(Participation in any previous Virtual Residency workshop

Please feel free to forward this to anyone who may be
interested and appropriate.


Does your institution have lots of researchers and educators who
want to use advanced computing, but need some help learning how?

You or someone at your institution can learn to be
more effective at helping researchers and educators
use research computing!

This is a great way to get better at a career in
helping researchers use research computing.

It's also a great way to meet a community of fellow
research computing facilitators.


The Virtual Residency Program has already served:

1120 people from 417 institutions in all 50 US states and
4 US territories plus 13 other countries on 5 continents,

* 63 Minority Serving Institutions (15% of VRP institutions);

* 112 non-PhD-granting institutions, including 4 community colleges
and 3 high schools (27% of VRP institutions);

* 114 institutions in all 28 EPSCoR jurisdictions
(27% of VRP institutions);

* 281 of 353 Campus Champion institutions (67% of
VRP institutions, 80% of Campus Champion institutions).

And, 78% of VRP institutions have had participants
who collectively have participated in VRP activities
multiple times, and 67% of VRP institutions have had
participants who collectively have participated in
multiple types of VRP activities.

Taking into account institutions already served by the
Virtual Residency and institutions that are scheduled to
be served by this coming summer's workshop:

* in the latest Carnegie Classification ratings:
-- 123 of 131 (94%) of R1 institutions (Carnegie Very High
Research Activity),
-- 80 of 135 (59%) of R2 institutions (Carnegie High
Research Activity);

* in the latest US News rankings of national universities:
-- all but one of the Top 10,
-- 23 of the Top 25 (88%, because #25 is a 2-way tie);
-- 47 of the Top 50 (87%, because #49 is a 6-way tie),
-- 85 of the Top 100 (83%, because #99 is a 4-way tie),
-- 125 of the Top 150 (78%, because #148 is a 14-way tie),
-- 145 of the Top 200 (72%, because #196 is a 6-way tie).

(This takes into account all of the Virtual Residency
activities: workshops in 2015-21, a couple of mini-workshops
run separately by the U California system, the Virtual
Residency workshop planning calls, the Grant Proposal Writing
Apprenticeship, the Paper Writing Apprenticeship, the
Grant Running Apprenticeship, and preregistrations for the
2022 workshop.)

Clarifying, since this question has come up in the past:

You *DON'T* have to participated in ANY past Virtual Residency
event (including this year's workshop planning calls),
NOR in Campus Champions NOR Campus Research Computing Consortium
(CaRCC) efforts, in order to participate in the
2022 Virtual Residency workshop -- though of course everyone in
those groups are encouraged to apply!
