About IP

Rollins College has emphasized the importance of an international perspective since the 1930s, and today that long-standing commitment manifests itself through exceptional study abroad programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, faculty exchanges with institutions around the globe, the innovative China Center, collaborative international research, courses with international focus across a range of fields, academic departments that fully integrate international content; a growing population of international students; an Office of Multicultural Affairs that offers programs, services and resources to create and sustain a diverse community on campus; and a commitment to community engagement —at home and abroad.  Two-thirds of our faculty are (or have been) actively engaged in international pursuits—taking students abroad, conducting overseas research, and teaching courses with an international or cross-cultural focus.  The President's Internationalization Initiative strives to enable every faculty member to have an international experience at least once every three years.  This unique and innovative program has also allowed faculty and staff to pursue international travel for research, conferences and collaboration and to participate in group travel experiences designed for and led by Rollins’ faculty members.  Rollins ranks among the top forty Master’s degree-granting institutions in the country for the number of students who study abroad.

The Office of International Programs provides the following services to the campus community and in support of the broad goal of complete campus internationalization:

  • Manages and reviews semester and short-term study abroad programs for undergraduate A&S students and undergraduate and graduate students of the Hamilton Holt school.
  • Provides advising for all students interested in studying abroad and offers support to students throughout the entire study abroad process, from research to return.
  • Develops, maintains and updates agreements with institutions and providers overseas where the focus of the agreement is a study abroad or exchange program.
  • Develops, maintains and updates agreements with institutions in the US to provide Rollins students with further opportunities for study abroad.
  • Provides support and training to faculty interested in leading or developing study abroad programs.
  • Works with International Student and Scholar Services to coordinate arrangements for incoming exchange students and visiting scholars who are affiliated with a study abroad or exchange program.
  • Reviews current program offerings and student, faculty and departmental needs, and subsequently develops new programs in a strategic and effective manner.
