The mission of the Department of Art and Art History is to provide outstanding educational experiences through the liberal arts curriculum, thus achieving the liberal arts mission of Rollins College.
The mission of the VRC is to assist its primary constituency, the Department of Art and Art History, in achieving their mission, and, where possible, to assist other units on campus.
The VRC supports the pedagogical needs of faculty, staff and students of the Department, through the development and management of a sustainable centralized collection of visual resources (digital images, 35mm slides, DVDs, VHS tapes, audio cassettes, CD-ROMs, art reference books, digital and analog image processing and projection equipment) through the provision of training and user support in these resources, and through maintenance of the Department’s Art History teaching classroom (room CFAC 116), which is outfitted with Smart Technology to enhance the learning experience of students at Rollins College.
Rollins College can leverage the VRC’s knowledge and expertise in the management of digitization projects for creating a digital image library; in the instruction of how to use technologies for teaching with images, and in copyright as it relates to the use of images in the classroom, by building on the VRC’s rich history of serving the needs of its immediate constituency, the Department of Art and Art History.
