Within the Center for Inclusion and Campus Involvement, one of our objectives is to ensure that we carry out the mission of Rollins College by “providing opportunities to explore diverse intellectual, spiritual, and aesthetic traditions.” Through this we provide various entries of engagement through our Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives.
The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences. These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, visible and invisible abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies. Inclusion is the presence and the acknowledgement of these identities and voices, both present and not, that cultivates an enriching experience to explore these differences in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment. It is about understanding each other and moving beyond tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions of diversity contained within each one of us.

Every January the Rollins community celebrates the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., beginning with an observance of the national holiday in his honor and continuing with a full slate of events offered by departments and organizations across campus, and in the surrounding community.
Our heritage and culture are not sterile components of our lives, but rich and intricate foundations for who we are. We invite students to experience this richness through a variety of celebrations from many different cultures and hertiages.
