SACNAS chapters are a powerful and inclusive source of community that provides local and regional support for college students and professionals to succeed in STEM. Official chapters are provided a networking group to connect with other SACNAS chapters and their members are eligible to chapter-exclusive opportunities, such as professional development training and funding. Official chapters are listed on the SACNAS Chapter Directory.
Process to Becoming an Official SACNAS Chapter
- New student groups that want to become an official SACNAS chapter, should apply to become recognized by the SACNAS National Office.
- Newly recognized chapters are approved as provisional chapters for their first 12-months. During this time the SACNAS national office works with chapters to ensure that they are on track to becoming high-preforming and sustainable chapters.
- At the end of the provisional status, chapters submit an annual report to provide an update on their progress. Chapters that demonstrate that they are becoming high-performing and sustainable chapters are approved as official chapters. Chapters need to submit annual reports each year to retain their official status.
