Understand yourself and your role in the world.
Branson’s Human Development program teaches students the interpersonal and self-management skills needed to navigate a diverse and changing world, and to make informed decisions that benefit themselves and others, so they can evolve into kind, curious, and self-aware young adults. By providing accurate and relevant information in a nonjudgmental, socially sensitive way, we create safe spaces to have uncomfortable conversations about real-life situations where students cultivate their personal agency, gain a deeper awareness of their role in the community, and learn to foster healthy relationships of all kinds.
