MANRRS is a national society that welcomes membership of people of all racial and ethnic group participation in agricultural and related sciences 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. For student members, MANRRS provides role models and networking opportunities. MANRRS also offers students opportunities to enhance leadership and organizational and public speaking skills, and to experience professional critique of scholarly worked in a “user friendly” environment.

The PRE-VETERINARY SCIENCE option is designed to meet the minimum requirements for applying to a school/college of veterinary medicine after only three years of undergraduate study. Completion of this option in its entirety plus the successful completion of the curriculum of the first two years at the Tuskegee University School of Veterinary medicine leads to a Bachelor of Science. The completion of this curriculum does not guarantee acceptance into a school/college of veterinary medicine, as applicants are selected on a competitive basis. Students interesting in applying to an institution, including the Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine, should review pre-professional requirements carefully in consultation with their assigned academic advisors.
