One goal the school has, with Branch leading the effort, is to increase inclusivity and connection across campus life.

“We are a diverse community of students. But diversity isn’t the goal, right?” Branch said. “It’s to have a diverse community and have those communities interact with one another in ways that aren’t harmful.
