scholarship is where discovery, integration, teaching, learning and
intersect linking knowledge with the goal of addressing critical social,
structural and environmental issues while contributing to the public
Rollins many faculty are involved in engaged scholarship through
service-learning, community-based research, community-engaged
scholarship, and civic engagement
inside and outside the classroom. Through these experiences faculty and
students have the opportunity to connect classroom curriculum and
discussions by engaging with some of the most pressing 21st Century
issues that face our community in Central Florida and
around the world.
Faculty and students work in partnership with community members and
non-profit, civic and governmental organizations to address key issues,
providing mutual opportunities for learning, progress, and change.
Community members are viewed as "co-educators" in
the learning experience. Students participate in assessment and critical
reflection as a part of the experience so that they are able to connect
their learning with a deeper understanding of global issues and
commitment of active citizenship.
