MANRRS Meetings and Information

Ms. Thomas is also the advisor for Multicultural Students in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANRRS) chapter at OSU. 

MANRRS is a national society that welcomes membership of people of all racial and ethnic group participation in agricultural and related science 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.

If you would like to sign-up to receive e-mails about the OSU chapter of MANRRS and upcoming meetings click here to add your name to their contact list. 

Regular meetings will be held bi-weekly on Wednesdays 5:30-6:30PM EST starting September 16th and feature skill-building, socials, alumni engagement & professional development. Please note that for the Fall 2020 semester, all MANRRS meetings will be hosted through Zoom. To access these meetings through Zoom, click here.
