SIROW Succeeds in 2014! (Part One)

The Southwest Institute for Research on Women (SIROW) had a number of successes in 2014, one of which is its inclusiveness and success in working with diverse groups of people living in the southwest US/Mexico border region. SIROW’s externally funded projects provide innovative intervention research with immigrant mothers; legal services for low-wage workers; substance abuse treatment for addicted women and their children; continuing care for adolescence completing treatment; strategies to reduce the school to prison pipeline; comprehensive programming for homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth; family services for Pascua Yaqui families with children 0 to 8 years of age; science education for Pascua Yaqui youth grades 3rd - 8th; and various educational K-12 programs for under-represented groups throughout Arizona; and other projects of importance for the UA and the broader community. These successful action-research projects engage UA student workers, interns, graduate research assistance, and others in a dynamic learning experience while also expanding the UA’s land grant mission. The collaborative nature of SIROW’s projects is synergistic and contributes to our knowledge of regional needs and successful research-supported strategies to address these needs.
