At Rollins, we value and embrace multiculturalism, diversity, and inclusion in our pursuit of academic excellence, global citizenship, and responsible leadership.
We have an active Diversity Council and several other diversity related organizations that promote multicultural awareness and inclusiveness, and engage in educational programming, community building, and advocacy.
At Rollins, we view the following principles as fundamental elements of our mission:
The Diversity Advisory Council seeks to foster and to model a campus environment that is welcoming, safe, and inclusive to all of our administrators, faculty, staff, and students. We view differences (e.g. nationality, race, gender, age, sexual orientation, socioeconomic class, physical ability, learning styles, perspectives, etc.) not as obstacles to be overcome but as rich opportunities for understanding, learning, and growth.

Established in 2011, Prism provides members with opportunities to connect in both formal and social settings to network and discuss topics of interest. Through a variety of means, Prism helps promote awareness and inclusiveness, and engages in community building and advocacy.
The Office of Inclusion & Campus Involvement is committed to building and promoting programs, services, and resources that serve to create and sustain a diverse community.
