Winter Park Institute

Message from the Executive Director

Rollins College is well into its second century of innovative education, and we are pleased that Winter Park Institute continues to provide yet another chapter of intellectual engagement in that long history.

Significant Scholars, Innovative Ideas

Significant Scholars, Innovative Ideas

Winter Park institute continues to bring significant scholars and innovative ideas into our shared community.

We began the 2008-2009 academic year by launching the Institute with its purpose of bringing top-echelon speakers from wide areas of expertise to our campus. The scope and variety of scholars, artists, and humanitarians featured over our first decade is impressive, and we promise to continue such thought-provoking programming for the future.

As we enter our second decade, we renew the pledge to bring significant conversations and currently relevant topics into our shared community. Winter Park Institute is honored to play an important role in Rollins College’s mission to further the liberal arts ethos and to educate students for global citizenship and responsible leadership and to continue building upon the heritage of enlightened conversations in the academy.
