Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources & Related Sciences (MANRRS)
MANRRS is a national nonprofit organization. The Lincoln University MANRRS chapter is comprised of approximately 25 students and two advisors. LU MANRRS strives to teach marketing goals, outreach and Extension.
MANRRS is a national society that welcomes membership of people of all racial and ethnic groups interested in careers in agricultural and related sciences. 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 the professional development of minorities. It is a springboard for their entry into and advancement in careers where they otherwise could feel lost in the sheer number of mainstream participants who have established connections. For student members, MANRRS provides role models and networking opportunities. MANRRS also offers students opportunities to enhance leadership, organizational and public speaking skills and to experience professional critique of scholarly worked in a user-friendly environment.
