Student Organizations


Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) at SF State is an inclusive and academic student organization that strives to advance the academic, professional and leadership qualities of our students, especially those with underrepresented backgrounds. We host informal social events within the departments of STEM and collaborate with other student and professional organizations. We hold outreach events where we collaborate with local elementary and high schools, showing them the ins and outs of college and how to bring about the most of their college experience. And finally, we hold workshops that involve computational training, networking and help with academic applications or documents for graduate school, fellowships, scholarships, etc.
