The SACNAS UW Chapter was founded in 2007 and consists of undergraduate, graduate, post-docs, faculty and staff from various scientific disciplines across campus. SACNAS UW Chapter focuses on academic and community outreach at college and K-12 levels. UW SACNAS is very dedicated to academic outreach and excellence, and has thus been nationally recognized. Awards include: Chapter of the Year (3), Role Model Chapter (1) and Distinguished Chapter (1).
Each year, our members attend the SACNAS National Conference, which is held at a different location within the U.S. Members are encouraged to submit poster and oral presentation abstracts, for each conference. The most recent SACNAS National Conference was held in Honolulu, Hawai’i in Fall 2019, drawing attention to URM recruitment/retention and development.
