Regional Partners

SIROW Regional Network
The Southwest Institute for Research on Women (SIROW), established in 1979, is a regional research and resource institute within the Gender and Women’s Studies Department at the University of Arizona. SIROW’s mission is to develop, conduct, and disseminate collaborative outreach, education, advocacy, and research projects of importance to diverse women and children in southwest United States and northwest Mexico. As part of this mission, SIROW coordinates a regional professional network for Gender and Women's Studies departments in the Southwest.

The SIROW Regional Network includes public and private universities from Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Wyoming, and the US-Mexico border region. Each member institution is represented by its sitting gender and women studies department head or unit director.

The SIROW Regional Network has three complimentary goals: (1) to serve as a clearing house - disseminating information about its regional partners via SIROW’s website, regional newsletters, and annual meetings; (2) to support the advancement of scholarship and research in gender and women’s studies across the region; and (3) to maintain and broaden a network of gender and women’s studies scholars and researchers – solidifying a supportive relationship between students, scholars, researchers and other feminist professionals.

As one of its main activities, the SIROW Regional Network convenes an annual meeting in the 3rd week of January each year where partners come together to brainstorm, plan, and network about how best to support one another, our faculty, and our students.
