Title:A Bold Investment in Research for the University of Illinois
Author(s):Towns, John
Information Technology (IT)
Geographic Coverage:University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Abstract:In order for the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to attain its vision of being the pre-eminent public research university in an era where research across all disciplines is critically dependent upon digital resources and services, the university must coherently accelerate the evolution of its digital research infrastructure. As a leading institution in computing and information technology with a culture of innovation, many efforts have arisen over the years that have been the product of this culture. While the largely organic development of digital infrastructure, resources, and support services has served campus researchers well, the lack of a coherent and unified approach is an impediment to this campus remaining at the forefront of research and limits its opportunity to be the leader in digitally-enabled research across all disciplines. In order to continue to excel, this university must make a bold move to proactively develop the coordinated digital support ecosystem required to realize its vision of preeminence in research.
