Fall 2021 Update
We are excited to welcome students back to campus for Fall 2021! We will be holding in-person events.  We do plan to take the opportunities learned from virtual meetings to have some collaborative online events with colleagues at North Carolina A & T and other schools as well.

Please mark your calendars for the following Tuesdays and plan to gather!

Tuesday October 26 4:30-6 pm 1810 Litton-Reaves

Tuesday November 9 4:30-6 pm, probably 1810 Litton-Reaves or lounge

Tuesday December 7 4:30-6 pm social gathering, location TBD

Please come see us at Gobblerfest on the Drillfield, Saturday September 4th!

We will have a welcome meeting on Thursday September 9 from 5-6:30 pm on campus.  This is a great time to learn “What is MANRRS?” if you’re new to the organization, and to come and share your experiences if you’ve been involved before.  And we want to hear everyone’s goals for the year!

We are planning a field trip and/or hike for September and a general body meeting where our graduate student members can give short elevator speeches about their research and undergraduates can learn about research opportunities in their fields.

We also will be planning some community service activities.  We welcome your involvement!

2020-2021 academic year
Our 2020-2021 events are virtual.  Please check our website and social media for links to register for our zoom meetings!  We have our next general body meeting coming up on Thursday March 25th.  We are not associated with the APIDA Month film described below but looks like something that would be of interest to our members so we are sharing the flier here.  Use this registration link to join the screening of Seadrift and conversation with director.

Screening of Seadrift April 14, 2021, 6-8 pm

Microinterventions 10/26/21

Our next meeting will be Tuesday 26 October 2021 from 4:30 to 6 pm in 1810 Litton-Reaves.  Please mark your calendars, plan to bring a friend or classmate, and spread the word! (Click MicroInterventions if you’d like to download a pdf format flier to print or share.)  This Tuesday we will have a brief presentation and discussion on how to respond to microaggressions (both as a bystander and a recipient).  Then we’ll move into goals and planning, and how to become involved in the national organization.  If you want to pay dues at this meeting, you can pay on CashApp or bring along $10. (But don’t worry about dues–fine to just check out the organization first before you decide to join!)   We’ll also have a drawing for some of the prizes you registered for at Gobblerfest and earlier events!  We aren’t planning to have food because of masking requirements, but will have some granola bar type snacks you can take with you!  Looking forward to seeing everyone!  See post below for additional meetings this semester.
