Mission: The SACNAS University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez Chapter is dedicated to the development of outstanding undergraduate students in leadership roles and science careers. Acknowledging that one of the main obstacles for the advancement of Hispanic students is the lack of knowledge about the opportunities available for them after graduation; we are determined to inform and prepare them to follow the career path of their dreams. This conference was designed for undergraduate students to become well prepared for their scholastic and professional endeavors.

About: The SACNAS UPRM Chapter was established in 2007. Its longstanding commitment to the development of undergraduate students has led us to win four consecutive SACNAS Role Model Awards:

- Excellence in Teamwork (2008)
- Professional Development (2009)
- Long-Term Excellence (2010)
- Chapter of the Year (2011)

A unique aspect of our chapter is that is supported by CoHemis (Center for Hemispherical Cooperation in Research and Education in Engineering and Applied Sciences). This organization has the goal of promoting the development of human resources, technology, and the commitment to develop projects that can be applied in order to satisfy the necessities of the Americas. Counting with their support the SACNAS UPRM Chapter has the advantage of providing opportunities which create network relationships between professors and students. This will contribute to the overall mission of SACNAS.
