Welcome to MANRRS at Oregon State University!

OSU-MANRRS provides a framework for academic, professional and social development of underrepresented students in fields of agriculture, natural resources and related sciences through leadership,  community service and professional development activities.

MANRRS not only provides leadership experience but also strives to arrange networking and professional development opportunities for members. The National MANRRS Annual Career Fair and Training Conference is an excellent event that leads to significant member recruitment and retention. The MANRRS National Conference enables OSU chapter members to connect with faculty, professionals and fellow students with similar interests from across the United States.
