Campus Champions @ Illinois
Campus Champions @ Illinois was started in August 2018. A local CC has been identified and is undergoing initial training and orientation. The precise role of the local CC is still being developed but community (campus) engagement and outreach to non-traditional consumers of High Performance Computing resources are major goals.
