UA gets grant to study impact of student sexuality on schools

The Frances McClelland Institute for Children, Youth, and Families at the University of Arizona has been awarded a $200,000 grant to study how student sexuality, gender and conformity norms affect school systems.

The Ford Foundation awarded the grant this week for the two-year study.

Stephen T. Russell, Institute director, said in a news release that past research has focused on the connection between student sexuality and gender norms, and overall health or student well-being.

The new study will examine how schools, districts and state education systems can implement programs and policies to improve student safety and create a better world for youth.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
