For many years, the Unidata program has been active in helping university departments deploy and use Unidata technologies. Through our governing committees (which are composed of faculty and staff from member universities), we've learned a lot about the current state of information technology support in geoscience departments today. In hopes of learning more about the evolving university IT landscape in today's budget-constrained environment, we are hoping other members of Unidata's university community will spend a few minutes to give us some insight into how information technology support works in your departments.
If you are associated with an academic institution — as a student, educator, or researcher — we hope you'll take the short survey we've created. It should take no more than five to ten minutes to complete (most of the questions are multiple-choice).
You can find the survey on the Unidata web site at:
