Connect to People and Ideas that Open Your World.
At Rollins College, we take great pride in offering an applied liberal arts education that prepares students to pursue meaningful lives and productive careers. A Rollins education empowers students to strive for excellence, cultivate intellectual curiosity, develop critical thinking, become responsible leaders, and engage in the world around them. Rollins faculty are a community of teacher-scholars, artists, and
performers who are nationally and internationally recognized for excellence and their commitment to student-centered learning. Faculty
and staff work with students to develop an integrated experience to link in-class learning with unparalleled applied opportunities such as hands-on undergraduate collaborative research, academic internships, national award-winning community engagement and first-year programs, as well as inspiring international experiences. A Rollins education exposes students to a broad range of
knowledge that transcends disciplinary boundaries and the traditional walls of the classroom.
