A Texas Tech student organization has been recognized as a role model chapter.

Tech’s Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science has received the 2011-2012 Role Model Chapter award for outstanding professional development during a recent national SACNAS conference.

The society is dedicated to helping underrepresented minorities advance academic and professional careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

The award was given for the chapter’s Science in 3D monthly events, where professors and graduate students from Texas Tech and the Health Sciences Center talk to students about their current research, and give students a tour of their research facilities.

“It’s important that the demographics of the scientific and medical communities reflect that of the population they serve,” said Andrew Armstrong, president of Tech’s SACNAS chapter. “When a small group of scientists realized they were the Hispanic representation in their field, they wanted to do something about it and started SACNAS.”

The chapter received the Role Model Chapter award for outstanding sustainability last year as well.
