Congratulations to Jay Chakraborty (Sociology) for received a $500k STARS award from the UT System to build a dedicated geospatial training lab!!! The new lab will be in the basement of Prospect Hall, and is comprised of two large rooms - one for teaching and another for research. This shared space will be wonderful! Stay tuned for renovation news.

DIALOG SOURCES

I3 Move Communities provide a way to share expertise, resources, and community information to the general public. There are numerous tools available, both open source and proprietary, for engaging in dialog and sharing information and knowledge within a closed group.

Communities have access to IBM SmartCloud, a tool that provides a Cloud Computing solution for sharing files, defining activities, creating blogs, developing wikis, and promoting ideas. To request an account and training on IBM SmartCloud, contact econnect@utep.edu.

This community engages in dialog as follows:
