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.
Through its mission, Rollins College is firmly committed to 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 sex, disability, race, age, religion, color,

orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, physical
characteristics, or any other category protected by federal, state, or local
law, in its educational programs and activities.
