A Message from the Haury Program

March 19, 2020

The Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice (Haury Program) is committed to serving the University of Arizona and community in their collaborations to address the pressing challenges of our times.  We are tracking the rapid changes and challenges due to COVID-19, and are modifying some Haury Program activities due to these developments.

Specifically, we are suspending the Spring 2020 Call for Proposals for all categories and the in-progress Challenge Grant Selection.  Challenge Grant Finalists thus need not submit feasibility studies.

Our rationale is this:  COVID-19 today remains a threat of unknown scope and duration.  To combat it effectively tomorrow will require accurate information, creativity, collaboration, strategic thinking, and human and economic resources that can be deployed nimbly and intelligently.  We thus are suspending some of our work now, in order to better respond to the greatest needs as these unfold before us.

To our awardees with work in progress, know this:  your health and safety, and that of the communities you serve, are paramount. Given the collaborative nature of your funded projects, we understand much, or all of your work may have to be suspended or substantially modified. Over the next few weeks, we will be contacting you via email to see how we can assist in this reassessment.

In the days ahead, the Haury Program will continue to emphasize building community and supporting each other. Nancy Petersen, Program Manager, and Hiram Peña, Project Coordinator are working remotely and stand ready to assist you. We both are available as always through email, phone and zoom meetings. 

We will provide further updates when these are available. Please also check our website or join our listserv by emailing:

Thank you for your dedication, resilience, leadership, and compassion. As always, you are the heroes in the stories we tell.
