Our Professors Know A Lot — Starting With Your Name

Thanks to a 10:1 student-faculty ratio and an average class size of 17, Rollins professors are able to engage their students through personalized learning experiences.

Great teachers are the foundation of a great education. At Rollins, you will learn from the very best. From Fulbright awardsprofessor-of-the-year accolades, and lucrative research grants, Rollins faculty are consistently recognized for excellence by both their students and the outside world. They are distinguished teachers, researchers, and scholars dedicated to academic excellence. They are also passionate performers and artists who employ everything from comic books and Zumba to brewing beer to engage their students and instill a curiosity for lifelong learning.

A Personal Approach

Rollins maintains a student-faculty ratio of 10:1 and an average class size is 17. This focus on small, discussion-style classes allows faculty to engage students through personalized learning experiences in an inclusive environment. Faculty pride themselves on being available to students and serve as dedicated advisors from convocation to commencement.

The Matriarch

You know those incredibly motivating, impossibly inspirational professors portrayed in movies? The ones everyone hopes they’ll have when they get to college? Jana Mathews, Rollins assistant professor of English, is the real-life version.

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.

Change Agent

Political science professor Dan Chong, Rollins’ new faculty director of the Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Hub, is dedicated to helping his students see the world differently.

A Culture of Collaboration

Thanks to the Student-Faculty Collaborative Scholarship Program, Rollins undergraduates partner with faculty on original scholarship and research that is typically only offered at the graduate-school level.

Better Together

For eight weeks this past summer, students and faculty worked side by side to tackle some of their fields’ most pressing issues as part of Rollins’ Student-Faculty Collaborative Scholarship Program.
