At Rollins, our expert faculty are true partners dedicated to helping you unlock your unique potential to make the world brighter, smarter, and more open to possibility.
A Personal Approach
Through our small, discussion-based classes, one-on-one advising sessions, and impromptu conversations on everything from Fortnite’s latest marketing campaign to the ethics of self-driving cars, our inventive faculty and industrious students give new meaning to the words “engaged learning.”
Windows to the World
From teaching courses on global fashions to leading field studies deep into the heart of the Costa Rican rainforest, Rollins faculty are committed to preparing students for global citizenship. In fact, two-thirds of the Rollins faculty are or have been involved in international pursuits.
A Culture of Collaboration
Our professors are a lot of things. They’re distinguished researchers and esteemed scholars. They’re sci-fi superfans, Broadway composers, and medieval masters. But students are more likely to call them “mentors” and “collaborators” because of their uncommon knacks for bringing subjects to life and connecting learning to the real world.
Meet Your Mentors
Your future professors are distinguished teachers, researchers, and scholars dedicated to academic excellence. They’re also passionate performers and artists who employ everything from comic books to prestige TV to engage their students and instill a curiosity for lifelong learning.
