In several units on the University of Arizona campus, researchers have active research programs studying school safety and school climate. There are numerous benefits to becoming more familiar with each other’s current research and research agenda. With a strong core of researchers and research interests, we can position ourselves to take advantage of grant opportunities, share data, develop multidisciplinary research projects, critique each other’s work, and present a strong voice for school climate approaches to both school safety and academic success locally and nationally. The first step in this process is to learn more about each other’s work. To that end, several researchers have volunteered to lead a 20 minute discussion of their work at the next two Adolescent Research Group Meetings in March and April. At the May meeting, we will evaluate this approach and plan for Fall semester. We would like to encourage all faculty and graduate students to participate.
