Welcome to SIRC

SIRC is undergoing a complete website rebuild and redesign to ensure optimal user functionality and satisfaction. During this time, our original website (i.e. this website) will be closed so that we can focus our efforts to most efficiently bring the new site to SIRC members. Should you need access to any of the previous website content (e.g., Instrument Review Project, Training Resources, questions about SIRC 2017), please email us at sirc@uw.edu and we will happily email you with this information.

If you would like to pay your 2016 SIRC membership dues, please go to: 

SIRC members gain access to (1) a repository of D&I instruments, (2) a D&I resource library (under development), listserv updates, and a searchable membership database (coming soon!). 

If you have any questions about our SIRC webpage or the conferences, please don’t hesitate to contact us at sirc@uw.edu.
