U.S. UCAN Affiliate Program (Pilot)
The U.S. UCAN is launching an affiliate program to facilitate advanced and innovative applications for community anchor institutions delivered over broadband networks. A call for participation (PDF) was issued in December, 2011.
The recent U.S. UCAN Task Force report (PDF) recommends an affiliate program in which each state that participates would have a designated affiliate organization for U.S. UCAN. Pilot affiliates will work with U.S. UCAN to expand the program over the course of 6–12 months.
The pilot affiliates are expected to be the primary contact point for local community anchor institutions (CAIs). The U.S. UCAN national program office and the pilot affiliates will work together to define and provide appropriate support, guidance, direction and services that can be offered to CAIs. Current Internet2 program fees will cover affiliate program participation during the pilot period.
