How to Collaborate with the  Southwest Institute for Research on Women (SIROW)

SIROW is now connected to 30 campuses in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, and west Texas, and with El Colegio de Sonora in Mexico. Volunteer campus coordinators in each location assist in disseminating information to and about SIROW.

The projects that SIROW undertakes either focus on women and gender in the Southwest and the Mexico-U.S. border region from a multicultural perspective, or are developed because they interest scholars in the region. Topically, SIROW has conducted work on women's education, employment, health, history, literature, and culture. Another strong interest is the recruitment and advancement of girls and women in science and engineering through the WISE program. See our programs and projects link for more detail information on the scope of SIROW research and action projects.

Because SIROW has a strong track record in obtaining grants from government agencies and private foundations, collaboration with SIROW can enhance funding prospects. SIROW has a policy document that describes the ways in which such collaborations are conducted. SIROW also initiates team research, faculty development, and outreach projects for which it seeks participants. SIROW welcomes visiting scholars. It can provide library and internet access, some support for telephone and copying charges, and office space on an availability basis.
