Welcome to our page! We are excited for you to join the UO SACNAS Student Chapter!
UO SACNAS exists to create a supportive community of STEM students at the University of Oregon. SACNAS is the Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science. Students of all backgrounds are welcome to join our community in support of this mission.
UO SACNAS members participate in many types of STEM-related activities, including:
- professional development events (résumé-writing workshops, networking activities, and workshops on getting involved in STEM research, crafting an “elevator talk” based on your research, etc.)
- outreach with local middle schools and high schools
- science-related fun and games
- preparation for SACNAS (or other) conference attendance
Students interested in an executive board/leadership position in SACNAS should contact Jim Prell or Madi Scott for details on upcoming SACNAS board elections, which we anticipate will take place in December, 2017.
