Rollins students interested in making a positive difference, in effecting real change in the world, have more opportunities and resources than ever before. The College’s recently renewed Ashoka U Changemaker Campus designation and its partnership with the new Central Florida Social Enterprise Accelerator speak directly to Rollins’ commitment to serving as a catalyst for social change.

All students, regardless of their major, can get involved in important hot-button issues through the Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship Hub, where students and faculty gather to develop creative and sustainable solutions to everything from poverty and the environment to education and health care. The Hub is a way of life, creating opportunities for mobilization on campus, in the local community, and on the global stage.
