SACNAS UPenn Chapter Logo

SACNAS stands for Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science.

SACNAS is an inclusive organization dedicated to fostering the success of underrepresented trainees in attaining advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership in STEM.

SACNAS is a home for people who want to advance their careers in the STEM fields without losing their connection to their communities and culture.

SACNAS is committed to developing leaders: scientists at the cutting edge of their fields, as well as community leaders who pave the way for the next generations. 

SACNAS is a network weaver, generating spaces for current scientific leaders and emerging scientists to come together, sharing common concerns, achievements, and opportunities.

 

MISSION

As the SACNAS Chapter at UPenn, our mission is to provide support, as well as academic and professional development opportunities for graduate students in science.
