SACNAS

The CSMC collaborates with its sister Centers for Chemical Innovation (CCIs) to participate in the Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) National Meetings. The goal of SACNAS is to encourage and support Hispanic/Chicano and Native American scientists at all levels in their career and leadership goals. 

In 2013, we sponsored a booth exhibit and chaired a session with the Center for Chemical Evolution (CCE), called "Living On the Edge - Chemistry At the Interfaces."   

In 2014, we organized and chaired a technical symposium: "It Takes a Village: How Chemists, Engineers, and Physicists Come Together to Create the Next Generation of Electronics" and participated in CENTC's "Expanding your Horizons Through Summer Research Programs".

In 2015, we particiated in the CCI technical symposium (organized by CENTC): "Chemistry to the Rescue: Creating Sustainable Processes"

Our Postdoctoral EOD Coordinator, Juan Carlos Ramos and graduate student, Stephanie Ramos are active in the SACNAS Leadership Program
