New and updated BRC Services for campus researchers

BRC Researchers featured in profiles and reports

If you or one of your colleagues are doing research we could profile, please let us know!

Campus Impact of BRC services documented

We track a range of measures to understand the impact our services have on campus, from the roughly $600 million in grants we support, to hundreds of publications, to the 15 faculty recruitment and retention cases we’ve supported. A report of this impact is now available on our website, and we’re working on a summary page on the site (coming soon).

New people on the team

Looking ahead

We’re currently working with our sponsors to renew program support for the next few years, so we can continue to support your work, and keep adding new services to meet your emerging needs. We expect to continue our collaboration with the Research Data Management program; an emphasis this year is support for secure data and computing services.

Thanks from all of us for your continued engagement, and let us know if you’d like any more information on any aspect of the program, at
