Mission Statement

SACNAS at Harvard is part of the SACNAS National Organization (http://sacnas.org/), a society of scientists dedicated to fostering the success of underrepresented scientists: Chicano and Chicana, Native American, African American, Latino and Latina, Asian American, Pacific Islander, as well as groups from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, first-generation, and LGBTQ. 

SACNAS at Harvard, from college students to professionals, is committed to creating a supportive academic environment for students in the STEM field at all levels and from all backgrounds to attain advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership in science.

Get Involved and Join our Chapter!

Any scientist or aspiring scientist that wants to be a part of our multicultural and multidisciplinary community should join! We are a community of scientists to help your experience at Harvard by providing mentors, professional development and outreach opportunities, social events across STEM fields, and a supportive environment to present your academic ideas. We need scientists to represent and help us with many outreach events to increase participation by members of groups underrepresented in STEM: African American, Latino and Latina, Asian American, Pacific Islander, Native American, as well as from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, first-generation, and LGBTQ. 

All students / faculty / staff are welcome to join, regardless of ethnic background.
