Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) at UCLA
SACNAS at UCLA is part of the SACNAS National Organization. Both the National Organization and the Chapter are dedicated to fostering the success of Chicano/Latino, Native American and other scientists belonging to underrepresented groups from college students to professionals. Success being measured as the attainment of advanced science degrees, science careers, and positions of scientific leadership. While the National Organization focuses on the students and professionals currently in science academics and careers, the Chapter aims to increase the pool of students entering the science education and career pipeline. We do so through various outreach efforts that target grades K-12, undergraduates, graduates, and transfer students in the Los Angeles area. Our outreach efforts help a new generation of students begin to identify as scientists and bring awareness of and access to postsecondary and higher science education.
