Chancellor Appoints Former ISSR Scholar Anna Branch (Sociology) as Associate Chancellor for Equity and Inclusion

Enobong (Anna) Branch, associate professor of sociology and former ISSR Scholar, has been appointed by Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy to the position of associate chancellor for equity and inclusion and chief diversity officer.

“Through her academic research on race and gender, as well as her professional activities on and off campus, Professor Branch has demonstrated a profound commitment to issues of inclusion and equity,” said Subbaswamy. ““The need for such leadership has never been greater given the national emergence of hatred and intolerance that we must all confront and reject. Our campus will undoubtedly face our own challenges in the coming academic year, and Professor Branch’s experience, knowledge and insight will bring new perspectives to our campus’s continuing effort to focus on these critical issues.” 

We warmly congratulate Professor Branch, and thank her for her leadership and service.
