Welcome to the Southwest
Institute for Research on Women!
The Southwest Institute for Research on Women (SIROW) was founded in 1979 as a regional research and resource institute. SIROW’s region includes Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Wyoming, and northwestern Mexico. SIROW’s mission is to develop, conduct, and disseminate collaborative outreach, education, intervention, and research projects of importance to diverse groups. Faculty, staff and students work locally, nationally and internationally with numerous University of Arizona colleges and departments, other institutions of higher education, K-12 schools, Native American tribes, governmental agencies and community-based organizations. SIROW’s projects focus on health and wellness, legal issues, education, employment, women’s history, and the arts.
