Greetings from the Frances McClelland Institute,

As the year begins, I wanted to take a moment to welcome everyone back to campus and to give you some updates about the Frances McClelland Institute for Children, Youth and Families (FMI). 

We are excited to welcome Dr. Katharine Zeiders, Assistant Professor in Family Studies and Human Development and co-chair of FMI's Latino Families Research Initiative. Dr. Zeiders brings cutting edge research regarding adolescent development and sociocultural stressors. We also welcome the FMI affiliated faculty and graduate students who have moved into the Institute suite.

This fall we are bringing to campus the leading expert in missing data, Dr. Craig Enders from the University of California, Los Angeles, for a full day workshop. You can find out more about the workshop below.

We also wanted to remind everyone of the resources that FMI has to offer both faculty and student researchers who are affiliated with FMI: We are looking forward to getting together again with our FMI Advisory Council this fall. We are also looking forward to an exciting year of top-notch scholars who will be speaking about their cutting-edge research findings in the Turbeville Speaker Series in areas of research methods, health, education, neighborhoods, and more.

We hope to see you all at the University of Arizona's Homecoming on October 28th where the Norton school will be celebrating Dr. Amy Jean Knorr's 100th birthday. Dr. Knorr has been a long-time supporter of the children, youth and families in Arizona. We look forward to honoring her at this year's homecoming luncheon, as well as having our FMI affiliated faculty and grad students present their research. 

Thank you all for your continuous support of the Institute. Don't forget to follow FMI on Twitter and Facebook for weekly updates about the Institute.

In Partnership,

Andrea Romero, Ph.D.

Missing Data? An Introduction to Modern Missing Data Methods
Craig Enders, Ph.D., University of California Los Angeles
Missing Data Methods Workshop

Got missing data? Not sure how to handle missing data in your analyses? We have a solution! Dr. Craig Enders, Professor of Psychology at UCLA, will lead a workshop focused on modern missing data methods on October 21st. The past 25 years have seen substantial methodological advances in the area of missing data analyses. The purpose of this day-long workshop is to introduce participants to modern methods for handling missing data, such as maximum likelihood estimation (ML) and multiple imputation (MI). The workshop will also include demonstrations of addressing missing data using multiple software packages (i.e., R, Mplus, and SAS).

Friday, October 21, 2016
McClelland Park, Room 210

Registration Fee: $25 for Students/$50 for Faculty

Honoring Dr. Amy Jean Knorr at UA Homecoming
This year the Norton School will be honoring  Dr. Amy Jean Knorr, and celebrating her 100th birthday. Dr. Knorr has been a lifelong supporter of the Frances McClelland Institute since its inception in 1997. Dr. Knorr served on the Norton School faculty as a professor of Home Economics Education from 1970 to 1984, providing an exceptional educational experience to hundreds of students.

In addition to celebrating Dr. Knorr's 100th birthday, the FCS Council of Alumni and Friends will have a fundraising campaign to support the Frances McClelland Institute of Children, Youth and Families. We hope you will consider a donation to the Frances McClelland Institute Endowment fundraising campaign to honor Amy Jean’s support of FMI and her legacy of improving the lives of children, youth and families in Arizona and the world.
