This paper emphasizes the organizational aspects of bringing workstation use into a wide variety of courses through small interdisciplinary organizations within the College called sectors. These sectors are charged with providing consensus on the service to be provided, maintenance of the chosen tools, shortform documentation, and training to both staff and students. We have found these organizations to be highly successful and feel that the underlying concepts are scalable to other educational problems in the College.
