Doing the Summer (Office) Shuffle

Coming back to Rollins from the summer break, the campus may feel a little different. Over the past couple months, we have been rearranging work spaces around the college, in order to better serve our community. We hope that these moves will improve our ability to collaborate and connect students with our mission of creating global citizens and responsible leaders.

I’m also excited to share that the Office of Disability Services, in order to better reflect its mission and values, has been renamed the Office of Accessibility Services. It has also been moved to the 1st floor of Olin Library, which is not only a more accessible location, but will also have more space to facilitate testing. For more questions, please feel free to reach out to Accessibility Services.

Listed below are the new locations for our re-located offices, taken from Rollins 360’s article, “Moves With a Mission.”

  • International House Fraternity & Sorority Life will move from Mills to International House, putting the office in close proximity to the majority of Rollins’ fraternities and sororities.
  • Olin Library Accessibility Services is moving to the first floor of the library to better accommodate students, including those with motor impairment.
  • Warren Building Deans from the College of Liberal Arts and the Hamilton Holt School will move to the second floor of Warren, next to Cahall-Sandspur Field, along with the offices of Grants and Contracts, Corporate and Foundation Relations, and the Vice President for Institutional Advancement.
  • Troutman Building Human Resources is moving to the Troutman Building, which is located a block from campus at the corner of Fairbanks and New York avenues.
  • Mills Building Community Standards and Responsibility, International Student & Scholar Services, International Programs, and External Scholarships are now on the main floor of Mills. Go upstairs and you’ll find the Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship Hub (along with CLCE, which will remain where it has been).
  • Carnegie Building Student Records, the Bursar, Academic Appeals & Degree Completion, and Academic Advising are now all housed on the second floor of Carnegie.

While change can be challenging, I am excited for the ways that these re-locations will better serve our entire community. Related services and programs now share space, creating “one stop shops” across campus that make it easier to access resources. Please feel free to visit these new spaces in the coming weeks – I know our staff would love to give you a tour!

As always, please feel free to visit my office (upstairs office suite in the Cornell Campus Center) or the Student Care office (downstairs office suite at the back of Dave’s Boathouse) with any needs or questions you may have. I look forward to seeing you all as we start a new academic year!
