National Organization

"The Society for Advancement of Hispanics/Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) is a society of scientists dedicated to fostering the success of  Hispanic/Chicanos and Native American scientists—from college students to professionals—to attain advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership in science."

Goals/Outcomes:

1. To increase the number of Hispanics/Chicanos and Native Americans with advanced degrees in science and the motivation to be leaders.

2. To increase the number of Hispanics/Chicanos and Native Americans in science research, leadership, and teaching careers at all levels.

3. To increase governmental commitment to advancing Hispanics/Chicanos and Native Americans in science resulting in increased resources, elimination of barriers, and greater equity.

Our Vision

​SACNAS was founded on a principle that has actively sought to bring much needed change within the community of scientists worldwide. With this objective in mind, our chapter has committed itself to empowering ALL individuals, from all backgrounds, who are not only passionate about science, but are also seeking to be changemakers. Our primary goal is to provide the necessary resources to both our internal community here at USD, and externally to our community in San Diego ( K-12 Schools & Community College). We welcome all those who stand in solidarity with our mission and look forward to expanding our family of fellow SACNISTAS.
