SACNAS has the goal of increasing diversity and fostering the success of minorities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. We encourage our students to attain advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership in STEM. At the same time, we promote that our members maintain and embrace their culture throughout their careers to build a more inclusive and diverse STEM workforce. Part of what we do is reach out to the community, participate in science education and mentorship, to encourage kids in our community to take interest in STEM and expose them to diverse scientist.
