Institute for Digital Research and Education (IDRE)
IDRE is a faculty-led organization co-sponsored by OARC alongside the Office of Research & Creative Activities (ORCA). OARC provides financial and administrative support for IDRE’s functions, which include special events, working groups, fellowships, and research IT governance. IDRE’s mission is to provide leadership on the use and development of advanced cyberinfrastructure methods, tools, and services for research and teaching. The IDRE Board is headed by a faculty executive director and it includes faculty representatives from across the UCLA campus. The board advises OARC on all matters related to digitally enabled research and cyberinfrastructure.
