Under the direction of Gene Roche, the Academic Information Services (AIS) team works with faculty members, students and administrators to ensure that William & Mary is a place where academic excellence and innovative research are the norm. Four groups comprise AIS:
When a professor asks a "How do I...?" question, the Academic Technology Specialist comes up with a creative solution that reflects the best of what modern technology has to offer. That said, our faculty members don't always know what questions to ask and that's okay. It's our job to assess your unique needs with the ultimate goal of enhancing your curriculum. We know that collaboration is key.

High Performance Computing (HPC)
The HPC group operates a centralized cluster computing facility similar to what you might find at a major governmental lab or academic supercomputing center, though on a smaller scale. In addition to consulting and teaching services, the HPC also supports a diverse collection of mathematical, statistical and application-specific software.
