    Education, and Outreach Service mission is driven by the critical need to advance computational science and engineering by recruiting, preparing, and sustaining a large and diverse scientific academic and industrial workforce. This workforce will be prepared to advance scientific discovery through the application of computational science and engineering using the XSEDE cyberinfrastructure ecosystem. The resulting workforce will be capable of designing, developing, utilizing, and supporting digital resources and services to advance CS&E in all fields of scholarship to benefit American competitiveness and society.

    The XSEDE Education and Outreach Services have three primary goals:

    Prepare the current and next generation of researchers, educators and practitioners to effectively utilize digital services in support of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM),
    Create a significantly larger and more diverse workforce in STEM, and
    Inculcate the use of digital services as part of their routine practice for advancing scientific discovery.
    The diagram below illustrates the range and focus of these services to be provided to address user requirements. The fully integrated services are focused on supporting and expanding the XSEDE user community. These services will work to engage and sustain new and novel projects to broaden community participation in utilizing XSEDE resources and services.

    There are multiple entry points for community members to become involved in XSEDE. The community may be engaged through XSEDE outreach activities that seek to make people aware of the resources and services available to benefit their research and education, through education activities that prepare the next generation of users, or through training activities that prepare current and potential users to make effective use of XSEDE. XSEDE will work with these new communities to create novel resources that empower them in new and innovative ways. The community members will become full partners in XSEDE.
