Undergraduate Diversity

We would like to encourage you to get involved in many of the activities our college has to offer on a yearly basis. We have organizations like Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANRRS). This organization was founded at Michigan State University and offers a variety of professional development opportunities.

During the spring and summer months, our office is highly involved with organizing and coordinating pre-college opportunities. An additional component of our office is documenting the importance of our activities through journal publications and presentations at regional and national conferences. If you would like to learn more about our office, please stop by and visit.

Our office is located at 121 Morrill Hall of Agriculture.
