Social Impact Hub

Academic Engagement

Combining academia and passion for social change, Rollins offers impact-focused programs to prepare students for responsible leadership.

Major or Minor

The Social Innovation major gives students the interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to address societal problems in creative, systematic, and sustainable ways.

The Social Entrepreneurship major and minor at Rollins combine practical business knowledge, entrepreneurial skills, and understanding of current economic, political, cultural, and environmental issues.

Both programs position graduates to find—or create—careers that apply innovative and sustainable solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.
