Support Collaboration & Undergraduate Research on the DataHub
Support research and foster community around Berkeley’s JupyterHub instance (DataHub), research, and technology by launching a pilot program to explore the needed capabilities and resources. Enable instructors or group leads to build more engaging assignments, leverage new teaching methodologies, and allow students to work in shared computing environments (similar to Google Suite) by developing Real-time Collaboration (RTC) and shared accounts within DataHub. Lessons from the pilot will be incorporated before expanding the program more broadly. Lead: Computing, Data Science, and Society | Partner: Research, Teaching, and Learning

Improve Services for Researchers Working with Data
Establish a common framework and methodology to understand storage characteristics and assess risk to research data, which allows both campus and investigators to place a value on that data, and for “one conversation held multiple times” (rather than a series of disparate conversations). Ultimately this will enable us to develop a campus storage strategy. Lead: Research, Teaching, and Learning | Partners: Berkeley IT - Campus IT Experience; and Berkeley IT - Campus IT Infrastructure

Support Growth in Computation for Research
Develop ways to leverage common resources to enable researchers in the College of Engineering to effectively plan, procure, and access computational resources, including traditional High-Performance Clusters (HPC), GPU computing, and access to tools such as DataHub. This project will serve as a blueprint for overall campus goals in power planning, as well as the Data Center Evolution Initiative. Lead: Engineering IT | Partners: Berkeley IT - Campus IT Infrastructure; Berkeley IT - Strategy & Partnerships; Computing, Data Science, and Society; and Research, Teaching, and Learning
Expand Digital Accessibility
The Digital Accessibility Program fosters inclusivity, ensures legal compliance, and enhances the digital experience for the campus community by pursuing work to meet WCAG Standards and accessibility policies; ensuring adherence to the Department of Justice consent decree obligations for publically available audio, video, and websites on the berkeley.edu domain and its subdomains; developing reporting; conducting training; and meeting auditor recommendations. Lead: Berkeley IT - Campus IT Experience |Partners: Berkeley Law IT; Letters & Science IT; Cal Performances; and University Development and Alumni Relations

Gender Recognition and Lived Name Policy
Ensure the ability to indicate one’s lived name and select from appropriately representative gender options — woman, man, and nonbinary — on university-issued documents and information systems, and create an efficient process for current employees and UC affiliates to retroactively amend their gender designations and lived names on university-issued documents, including eligible academic documents and in information systems. Lead: Berkeley IT - Campus Applications & Data | Partners: Berkeley IT - Campus IT Experience (Student Affairs IT); Berkeley IT - Information Security Office; Engineering IT; Summer Sessions, Study Abroad, Lifelong Learning, and Extension; and University Development and Alumni Relations
- Learn more about the Gender Recognition/Lived Name Policy
Berkeley IT Culture Champions
Advance Berkeley IT DEIB+ work forward by developing and implementing a program to create a team of advocates, co-conspirators, and interns that will learn the meaning and foundations of DEIB+, help create a curriculum and training specific to their unit, and implement skills and techniques to foster a diverse community where all are welcomed. Lead: Berkeley IT - People, Performance & Culture
- Learn more about Berkeley IT Culture Champions
Data Center Evolution*
Implement short and medium-term solutions to ensure Berkeley can accommodate growing research computing demands linked to interdisciplinary trends (such as the rise of data science and the explosion of computational work). Continue to attract and retain faculty researchers and mitigate concerns about the rapidly increasing cost of power and capacity constraints within the Earl Warren Hall Data Center. This project is critical to our ongoing work to support research on Campus. Co-Leads: Berkeley IT - Campus IT Infrastructure and Berkeley IT - Strategy & Partnerships | Partners: Berkeley IT - Campus IT Infrastructure; Berkeley Law IT; Berkeley Public Health; Computing, Data Science and Society, Research, Teaching, and Learning (Research IT)
- Learn more about the Data Center Evolution
Network User Experience Improvement
Support access to information, online learning, collaboration, administrative efficiency, innovation, research, and student engagement by continuing to modernize and improve the stability, usability, capability, and capacity of various network services, including Core and Building networking, Wi-Fi Infrastructure, Wi-Fi Device Connectivity, Campus Firewall, and Campus VPN. Lead: Berkeley IT - Campus IT Infrastructure | Partners: Berkeley IT - Campus Experience (Student Affairs IT); Research, Teaching, and Learning
