SACNAS at UMD
Society for the
We are students, faculty, and professionals from UMD. Our goal is to foster the success of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in STEM, from college students to professionals, in attaining advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership in STEM.
What is SACNAS?
SACNAS is a national organization seeking to advance Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science.
Through trainings, events, national conferences, funding, mentoring, and the establishment of support networks, SACNAS helps these communities reach leadership positions in STEM.
Although its mission is to advance those communities, SACNAS is open to all members of society, and all career stages!
The land acknowledgment we use was organized by Ghonva Ghauri from MICA and approved by Piscataway elders. If you'd like to use the land acknowledgement below for your own office/school/group, please feel free, but we ask that you not change any of the words aside from the office/unit name, as this was the exact language that was approved by Piscataway Tribe elders.
