Center for Inclusion and Campus Involvement

Diversity & Inclusion

Within the Center for Inclusion and Campus Involvement, one of our objectives is to ensure that we carry out the mission of Rollins College by “providing opportunities to explore diverse intellectual, spiritual, and aesthetic traditions.” Through this we provide various entries of engagement through our Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives.

The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences. These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, visible and invisible abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies. Inclusion is the presence and the acknowledgement of these identities and voices, both present and not, that cultivates an enriching experience to explore these differences in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment. It is about understanding each other and moving beyond tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions of diversity contained within each one of us.

Student Organizations

Working closely with the heads of the student cultural organizations we work to help cultural organizations gain visibility on campus through programming and increased membership. Learn More about Student Organizations

Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration and Education

Every January the Rollins community celebrates the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., beginning with an observance of the national holiday in his honor and continuing with a full slate of events offered by departments and organizations across campus, and in the surrounding community.

Culture and Heritage Celebrations

Our heritage and culture are not sterile components of our lives, but rich and intricate foundations for who we are. We invite students to experience this richness through a variety of celebrations from many different cultures and hertiages.

Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives

We work closely with varying offices and organizations (internal and external) to develop relevant training programs. In addition we also offer collaborative partnerships in the planning of programs that advance issues of diversity in campus and community; consultation on diversity strategic plans and initiatives for community members who wish to engage in embracing diversity best practices; diversity education workshops for student organizations, courses, campus offices, and community partners that increase diversity awareness, incorporate practice and create dialogue. Learn more about Diversity & Inclusion Initiatives

Not only does Rollins offer a number of places to connect with spiritual and religious communities, but the Winter Park and Greater Orlando areas are home to a wide plurality of congregations. Learn More about Religious & Spiritual Life
