SACNAS at NC State Executive Team

We are a small team of undergraduate students at NC State focused on increasing the representation of underserved and under represented communities in STEM. Every year, our Executive Team is voted in, and new positions are announced as soon as they are available. We are committed to working hand in hand with faculty and other student organizations, as well as giving students an opportunity to advance their own projects or gain greater exposure.
