Unidata is governed by its community. Our governing committees facilitate
consensus-building for future directions of the Unidata Program and establish
standards of involvement for the community. Direct involvement in the Program by the
academic community helps Unidata stay on top of trends in Earth Systems Science
education and research; for example, recent initiatives on Python and cloud-based
computing have benefited tremendously from committee advice and involvement.
We are looking for creative people at U.S. universities and colleges who are using Unidata
products and services — or who are familiar with Unidata — to help guide
the program in addressing the needs of our broadening community. We need the insights
of active educators and researchers to spot new opportunities and take advantage of
the expanding range of scientific data. We're looking for help identifying new tools
and services — along with improvements to our existing offerings — that
will advance the scientific and educational goals of the community.
