MANRRS & ROSS VET
New! MANRRS Partnership
As part of its commitment to diversity and inclusion, Ross Vet proudly partners with the Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Related Sciences (MANRRS) organization to provide students from a wide range of backgrounds opportunities to follow their chosen career in veterinary medicine. Through this collaboration, we aim to strengthen the visibility of minority and underrepresented/underserved student populations in our recruitment and admissions efforts and expand diversity and inclusivity within the veterinary profession.
WHAT IS MANRRS?
MANRRS is a national society that welcomes membership of people of all racial and ethnic group participation and promotes academic and professional advancement by empowering minorities in agriculture, natural resources, and related sciences. Visit the MANRRS website to learn more.
