Rollins College is deeply committed to the most important purpose in liberal education: educating for responsible leadership and global citizenship. Rollins is recognized locally, nationally and internationally for its distinctive mission.
How committed are we to global citizenship? Maybe Rollins became the top masters-level producer of Fulbrights because not only are we committed to sending our students abroad to places as diverse as Costa Rica, Australia, or China, we send all our faculty abroad too—even to Antarctica! No other college in America has the same commitment.
We're just as deeply committed to developing responsible leaders, whether through our award-winning programs in community engagement, our nationally recognized center for entrepreneurial leaders in the Crummer Graduate School of Business, a Holt faculty member in our counseling program who has received extensive accolades for her work with women in Thailand, or a new graduate program in Civic Urbanism.
We're leaders in everything we do. Don't just take our word for it. Ask US News and World Report, The Financial Times, Campus Compact, Business Week, The Chronicle of Higher Education, the American Association of Colleges and Universities, Entrepreneur, The President's Honor Roll, Fulbright, Carnegie—all of whom have recognized this place for its outstanding purpose. Become a part of the best place under the sun for a liberal arts education.
