The Rollins Center for Language & Literacy is a professional development center founded in 2004, with the singular purpose of breaking the cycle of illiteracy for children who have been denied access to educational opportunity. Rollins does this by extending the science-based instruction received by each child at the Atlanta Speech School to every child through facilitation and coaching in regional schools and, on a global scale, through the free online Cox Campus.
Founded in 2014 following a generous grant from the James M. Cox Foundation, the Cox Campus online learning platform aims to provide free and open access to equity-based, IACET-accredited Science of Reading coursework, content, and professional learning across the learning continuum – prenatal through literacy. Through continued support from national and local philanthropic partners that are committed to access and equity, including the Rollins Family, the James M. Cox Foundation and the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation/The Joseph B. Whitehead Foundation, Cox Campus provides literacy resources to more than 200,000 members across all 50 states and in more than 80 countries globally. In 2021, more than 99,000 courses and videos were completed, which is equivalent to approximately $15M in accredited professional development courses.
