The mission of EMBARK is to help students of underrepresented populations, including but not limited to those of racial and ethnic-minority background; religiously diverse backgrounds; those having a disability; and those identifying as LGBTQ+. This program begins with a pre-orientation program and continues throughout a student’s time at Rollins as a cohort-based leadership opportunity.

A cohort-based student development opportunity for students of underrepresented backgrounds, the EMBARK program leads students through different opportunities to explore themselves and the Rollins community & gain mentoring relationships, resources, and knowledge that will ultimately lead to their success as a Tar.
Students will begin their journey at Rollins with student leaders who will guide them through 2 days of team-building, identity activities, and exploration of their new environment. This exploration will include the opportunity to network with Rollins staff & faculty, administration, and other students across campus.
