is welcoming, safe, and inclusive to all of our administrators,
faculty, staff, and students. We view differences (e.g.
nationality, race, gender, age, sexual orientation, socioeconomic
class, physical ability, learning styles, perspectives, etc.) not
as obstacles to be overcome but as rich opportunities for
understanding, learning, and growth.

creating a just community that embraces multiculturalism; persons
from historically under-represented minority groups are therefore
encouraged to apply. Rollins does not discriminate on the basis of
