Student and faculty news and announcements!
The Student-Faculty Collaborative Scholarship Program at Rollins offers students the opportunity to participate in high-level scholarly research that is typically only available at the graduate-school level. What sets Rollins’ program apart from similar programs at other colleges and universities is that this program is a collaborative project between the student and a faculty member, not just a student project, or an assistantship to a faculty member’s own research.
