An Immersive Experience

CLCE gives students the opportunity to make a difference near and far.

“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'” - Martin Luther King, Jr.

In honor of Martin Luther King’s legacy, the month of January was dedicated to community  and education as it aligns with his life’s work. Here’s a glimpse into a few of the initiatives that celebrated his legacy:

  1. For the Dream: United to Make a Change. This Immersion took a group of 12 participants to Jacksonville, FL to focus on past and current issues impacting Black Americans in Florida while taking action in the community.
  2. The Black Student Union facilitated an Immersion to Savannah, GA to focus on MLK’s impact on the community there. During this experience, students did service projects at Second Harvest Food Bank, Union Mission, and attended an MLK vigil. 
  3. 5-Minute Difference project. As part of a weekly series of small service projects on campus, Rollins students, faculty, and staff took the time to assemble hygiene kits for Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida.
  4. Beyond the Hashtag: The Black Lives Matter Movement. The Center for Inclusion and Campus Involvement hosted an open conversation about the root of the #BlackLivesMatter Movement.
  5. MLK Day of Service. To conclude MLK Week, students, faculty, and staff spent several hours at Tangelo Park Elementary to assist with beautification projects and organize their facilities.


An Engaged Campus

“An engaged campus is one that is consciously committed to reinvigorating the democratic spirit and community engagement in all aspects of its campus life: students, faculty, staff and the institution itself. The engaged campus recognizes that knowledge cannot be separated from the purposes to which it is directed. The engaged campus is not just located within a community, it is intimately connected to the public purposes and aspirations of community life itself. The engaged campus is unable to separate its unique responsibility for the development of knowledge, from the role of knowledge in a democratic society to form the basis for social progress and human equality.”
