SACNAS, the Society for Advancement of Chicanxs and Native Americans in Science, is an inclusive organization dedicated to fostering the success of underrepresented minorities in attaining degrees and positions of leadership in STEM. The vision of the SACNAS graduate chapter of UCSB is to provide a community that provides support, resources, and opportunities for graduate students in STEM through professional development, social, and outreach events.
The SACNAS community at UCSB is made up of people with diverse voices, experiences, and backgrounds. We seek to harbor an inclusive and welcoming multicultural space in which people can come together as their authentic selves. We hold a variety of events to cultivate a social network amongst our peers, some of which include, coffee hours, happy hours, mental health activities, game nights among many more!
