Protecting the safety, health, and well-being of our students is, and always will be, our primary concern each and every day. In the last few years, Branson's release of the Covington Report and response to alumni allegations of sexual misconduct on campus in past decades has thrown an even brighter spotlight on the need to protect our students. We have responded by strengthening our policies, protocols, and support systems in an attempt to assure that such misconduct will not happen at Branson in the future.

Learn more about the ways we are promoting student safety and working to protect students from any future sexual misconduct on campus.

Breathe.

Meditation bench

Branson's beautiful campus, nestled in nature, provides space and quiet for reflection to help you hit "pause" and take a break from the daily grind. Relax on the lawn, or meditate on the bench under our big oak trees. Keep your eye out for deer, hawks, and even foxes.

Meet Reggae - Branson's Therapy Dog!
