HBS is unique among top business schools, perhaps in higher education more broadly, in having a unit like the DRFD – one that funds faculty research internally, provides centralized research services, and combines nearly all faculty-related administration and services under one umbrella. From the time a prospective faculty member is identified as a recruiting candidate, the DRFD team’s focus is to support the success of each individual and contribute to an environment where they can thrive and do their best work in service of the School’s mission.

RCS is a centralized service within the DRFD that supports faculty for all their research computing needs. These services include managing access to and support for the research computing infrastructure and research computing software as well as a full range of research computing services provided directly to faculty in conducting their research including data collection, acquisition, processing, and manipulation; statistical programming and methodological consulting; and data analysis, visualization and presentation of data. The portfolio of services contributes to the School’s ability to attract and retain faculty. Members of RCS team provide consultation services to faculty and other researchers and work on specific research projects for faculty members.
