Utah SACNAS Chapter Mission:

To foster the success of underrepresented minority students and young professionals at the University of Utah by preparing, encouraging and supporting  them to pursue advanced degrees, careers, and leadership positions in the sciences while also helping to strengthen the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) pipeline for high school and middle school minority students.




The main reason I choose the University of Utah for my PhD is all the support the students get. Not only is there support in the academics, but there is also support from cultural mentors.
