Every aspect of a Rollins education encourages greater connections to people, ideas, and community. Faculty members choose Rollins because they love to teach and are encouraged to share their individual and professional experience with students. In the classroom and beyond, Rollins professors challenge students to broaden their interests, to deepen their talents, and to be better prepared for graduate school and life.
Many Rollins students work directly with their professors on research projects. “The concept of student-faculty collaborative research is not unique, but at Rollins we’ve taken it to a different level. We engage more students, we involve all aspects of the liberal arts, and most importantly we spend more time collaborating with our students,” said Thomas Moore, A.G. Bush Professor of Science.
Rollins has a long history of innovation when it comes to creating educational programs that meet today’s challenges and recently announced a new Master of Planning in Civic Urbanism program with classes beginning in fall 2010. The program combines classroom work, professional expertise, studio projects and internships, and will provide students with the skills they need to help cities and towns shape their futures.
