Tell us a little about Rollins College.
Rollins College is the #1 ranked private school in the South and the oldest institute of higher education in Florida. We educate tomorrow’s leaders for global citizenship and responsible leadership. Rollins offers multiple MBA degrees at the Crummer Graduate School of Business and multiple undergraduate and graduate degrees at the Rollins School of Professional Advancement and Graduate Studies.
What made Rollins College join the Florida Chamber Foundation’s Board of Trustees, and what would you say to other Florida business leaders about the benefit and value of this partnership?
This Board is the one entity that wrestles with and tackles critical issues to help the prosperity and well-being of the state. The diversity of the Board and the real-life issues we learn about and try to solve makes the Florida Chamber Foundation one of the most fulfilling organizations I support.
What are Rollins College’s particular areas of interest as they apply to reaching the Florida 2030 Blueprint goals designed to make Florida a top 10 global economy by 2030?
Among many other goals, Rollins supports the Florida 2030 Blueprint’s efforts to secure Florida’s talent supply and education. Preparing workers and leaders for tomorrow is critical. And Rollins students are educated to be collaborators, self-starters, broad thinkers and able to adjust and pivot to new and emerging trends and jobs. With ever-evolving workforce needs, having well-rounded critical thinkers in the workforce is a massive advantage for students and businesses.
