UC Riverside is platinum sponsor of national conference attracting high-achieving minority students
Date:9/16/2010

RIVERSIDE, Calif. The University of California, Riverside is a platinum sponsor this year of the annual conference of the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center, Sept. 30Oct. 3.

As many as 3,500 science undergraduates, graduate students, and professors from colleges and universities across the United States will attend the conference to present their research, talk about their experiences, and stress the importance of science education. Most of the students attending are high-achieving undergraduates and are looking for graduate programs to further their studies.

"Nearly all the students attending the conference are from underrepresented minorities in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields," said Joseph Childers, the dean of the Graduate Division at UC Riverside, who will attend the conference. "They are already engaged in research and are actively working toward the next step in their education. Faculty in attendance serve as the students' mentors, talking with the students about scientific research and what it takes to be successful in science."

Timothy P. White, the chancellor of UCR, is scheduled to address the conference at the opening banquet on Sept. 30.

About 200 of the students participating in the conference will visit UCR on Thursday morning, Sept. 30, to learn about the university's graduate programs. They will tour labs, talk to UCR graduate students and faculty members in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields and listen during breakfast in the Highlander Union Building to presentations by Jodie Holt, a professor of plant physiology, and Cheryl Hayashi, a professor of biology.
