Research Services

We provide and facilitate services for research faculty and students at SEAS. Our offerings include:  

  • a home directory for file storage for all SEAS students, staff and faculty
  • a departmental share for staff and faculty
  • a research share for researchers
  • high-performance computing options
  • Capital Area Advanced Research and Education Network
  • Data Management Support Services

We are currently working on the implementation of a backup infrastructure, which will ensure that data stored on the centrally managed storage is backed up to an alternate location. 

Capital Area Advanced Research and Education Network

The Division of IT is proud to announce the Capital Area Advanced Research and Education Network (CAAREN), a program designed to build a high-performance research and education infrastructure serving the Washington, DC, and Northern Virginia areas.

Data Management Support Services

GW researchers often request and receive funding from the federal government and other external organizations. In order to ensure that the data use agreements (DUAs) meet university policies as well as the requirements of funding agencies, the Division of Information Technology works closely with the George Washington University's Office of the Vice President for Research, providing data management support services to review and assist the principal investigators (PIs) in creating data management plans (DMPs) to ensure compliance with appropriate policies and regulations. In some situations the Division of IT may also work closely with the appropriate desk-side support to help prepare workstations that suit the requirements within the DUA or make loaner computers available. Due to limited availability of loaner machines, these are offered for specific instances of DUAs only.

It should be noted here that DUAs should not be signed by university faculty or staff members without institutional approval from GW's Office of the Vice President for Research.
