Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Rollins

At Rollins, we view the following principles as fundamental elements of our mission: We affirm the value of human diversity because it enriches our intellectual lives and our community. We celebrate the open exchange of ideas within a climate of civility and mutual respect.

Why is DEI important in the workplace?

According to the Unrealized Impact study from 2017, "diverse teams are more innovative and make better decisions, and diverse companies have better shareholder returns." Time again, studies have proven that not only do folks working in a diverse setting feel safer and more comfortable to show up as their authentic selves, organizations also benefit from diversity in thought, background, and working style. Creating an inclusive environment that fosters equity is a win-win for everyone involved.

At the Center for Career & Life Planning, our goal is to empower students to seek opportunities that align with their values and identities, as well as educate and uplift employers that respect and foster those identities.
