Undergraduate Diversity

Welcome

Welcome to the Office of Undergraduate Diversity, we are here as a resource and support system for all undergraduate students in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR). We encourage you to connect with us and get involved with the various activities taking place in our college. There are student organizations, guest speakers, events and a variety of other opportunities available for you to engage in.

During the spring and summer months, our office is highly involved with organizing and coordinating pre-college opportunities. If you would like to learn more about our office, help out with recruitment and pre-college activities, or just simply have a conversation, please feel free to stop by and visit.  Our office is located in room 121 Morrill Hall of Agriculture. Ask for Phillip or Stephanie.

 

Getting Involved

One of the easiest ways to develop a connection in the CANR is through involvement. CANR has several student organizations available for you to connect with. Our office, along with Dr. Eunice Foster, currently advises Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANRRS). This organization was founded at Michigan State University and has blossomed into a national organization with chapters at several universities across the country offering both professional and personal development opportunities. Today MANRRS (www.manrrs.org) has almost 1,700 members (latest briefing) in over 65 chapters in 38 states and Puerto Rico.

If you are interested in other ways to get involved, please feel free to stop by our office to discuss.

 

Pre-College

The CANR Undergraduate Diversity office currently offers four pre-college programs for students in grades ranging from 8-12. The agriculture and natural resource industries offer a wide array of career opportunities often unknown to perspective students and families. Through our pre-college initiatives, we seek to not only provide exposure to higher education but to open the door to the endless opportunities in agriculture and natural resources.
