Honoring Our Founders

Back in 2009 SACNAS founding members Dr. Clifton Poodry (Seneca) and Dr. Marigold Linton (Cahuilla-Cupeño) saw a need: there was no program dedicated to training the next generation of STEM leaders of color. As our mentors and leaders retire, who will be ready to lead our nationwide mission to diversify STEM?

Both distinguished leaders at SACNAS, Poodry and Linton led the founding of the SACNAS Summer Leadership Institute, developed in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The institute trains and equips 30 PhD-level scientists each year, cultivating the largest cohort of diverse STEM leaders in the country.

Today the institute bears the name of its founders: Linton-Poodry SACNAS Leadership Institute (LPSLI)
