She was that program’s director from 2007-2016. Previously, she worked in residence life and multicultural understanding at The Ohio State University, University of Maine, and Indiana University. She earned a PhD in Higher Education and Student Affairs from Indiana, and master’s and undergraduate degrees from Ohio State. As an ACPA member, Dr. Branch served on the Commission for Professional Preparation directorate, was an Emerging Scholar, and provided leadership for the 2005 Next Generation Conference. She also is a member of NASPA, the Association for the Study of Higher Education, and the American Educational Research Association. Her research interests are college student development and learning, environmental theory and assessment, socio-cultural student diversity, and the utilization of participant-generated visual methods in qualitative inquiry. Currently, she is working on a co-produced book entitled Applying Student Development Theories Holistically. Her current graduate-level instructional responsibilities parallel her research and include supervision of experiential learning placements. She also advises departmental undergraduates and is on the advisory board for an interdisciplinary undergraduate minor in leadership studies.
