In January 1931, Rollins hosted a Curriculum Conference, with the distinguished educator John Dewey as chairman. Leading educators gathered to discuss a number of matters, including core curricula, general education and purpose of a bachelor’s degree as a whole. The resulting recommendations–which emphasized "Individualization in Education"–were implemented by Rollins in the fall of 1931. So provocative were these innovations that Sinclair Lewis, in his Stockholm address accepting the Nobel Prize in literature, listed Rollins as one of only four colleges in the United States doing the most to encourage creative work in contemporary literature.
