About Research Support Services


CCIT’s Research Support Services (RSS) team works to identify research needs across University and aims to provide over-arching services and infrastructure to further research and meet the vision set by Mines@150. RSS will help faculty by identifying IT solutions and help facilitate their research by providing assistance in areas such as: management, storage, and transfer of research data, evaluating cloud vs. on-premise sharing of data, project management in regards to IT solutions, etc. By providing consultation services and by acting as a liaison between faculty and CCIT groups, RSS is able to efficiently provide a customized solution to fit research needs.
