Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources & Related Sciences (MANRRS)

What is MANRRS?

MANRRS is a student-run chapter of the national MANRRS organization. MANRRS provides students with an expanded network and social, professional, and career building opportunities. Our student organization holds biweekly meetings throughout the semester, gives back to the community through volunteer work, hosts social events, and attends the regional and national MANRRS conferences each year. The national MANRRS conference includes poster sessions, public speaking events, a career/internship fair, professional development workshop sessions, and a wide array of networking opportunities. For more information about MANRRS, please contact co-advisors Tex Ostvig and Britney Hayes.

The MANRRS Virtual Regional Clusters will be held in the fall of 2022. The Regional Cluster is a premiere recruiting event.  It features an Opportunity Fair, workshops, student competitions, networking opportunities, and professional and leadership development for student and professional attendees.


In collaboration with the CFANS Office for Diversity and Inclusion, MANRRS hosts the annual Multicultural Student Kick Off event for students of color in our college during the month of September each year. This event aims to foster a sense of community and belonging among all CFANS students of color with games, panel speakers, raffle prizes, and more.
