MANRRS (Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Related Sciences) is a national society that welcomes membership of people of all racial and ethnic group participation in agricultural and related sciences careers. MANRRS members are encouraged to be full participants in other professional societies for their basic disciplinary and career interests. However, MANRRS attempts to provide networks to support professional development of minorities. It is a springboard for their entry into and advancement in careers where they otherwise could be lost in the sheer number and established connections of mainstream participants. For student members, MANRRS provides role models and networking opportunities. MANRRS also offers students opportunities to enhance leadership and organizational and public speaking skills, and to experience professional critique of scholarly worked in a “user friendly” environment.
The Colorado State University MANRRS Chapter strives to embody just that. We are a tight-knit all-inclusive group of dedicated, driven, and diverse CSU students who come together to make positive differences in our chapter, on campus, and in the community. Meetings are in NR 109 at 5 p.m. every other Wednesday starting January 24th. Contact us for information on our next meeting!
