What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Regis College closes the second decade of the 21st century a strengthened institution. Our students come from all backgrounds, including first-generation and low-income students and those from under-represented minorities. Needs for their continued preparation for the 22nd century include: Athletics—Add critical components to our athletic facilities to sustain the Regis Athletics program as its facilities serve the broader community. Capital—Strengthen our 90 year old campus including building new capacity for STEM disciplines. Faculty and Program Development—Our exceptional faculty must be further supported within pedagogy, instructional technology and their academic disciplines. Equally essential is continued innovation to deliver high quality programs in the liberal arts and sciences that lead students to success in a globalized world. Scholarships—Prioritizing financial support for our students; Student Success—Investments in resources to increase persistence to graduation.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

A. Undergraduate Education

Regis College serves over 1,000 undergraduate students in its School of Nursing, School of Business & Communication, School of Arts & Sciences, and School of Health Sciences. Nationally recognized as a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education, the Young School of Nursing at Regis College promotes serving “our Dear Neighbor without distinction.” Undergraduate education is aligned with our strategic priority to
cultivate and perpetuate CSJ values. The accelerated Bachelor of Science in nursing program provides adult students with an associate’s degree an accessible and affordable path to completing their degree. Regis has
invested in student supports to improve outcomes, including the new Lorraine Tegan Learning Common in the second floor of the library that provides an active, comfortable environment where students can discover, create and collaborate with peers, academic coaches, tutors, library staff and faculty and be motivated, productive and more successful academically; the new resource room and simulation labs for nursing students; the PRIDE Scholars program that offers additional supports to a cohort of most at-risk students each year; and student supports including coaching made possible by a grant from the federal Title III program that enables institutions of higher education to expand their capacity to support low-income students. These initiatives support our strategic plan priority to improve student outcomes.

Population(s) Served

Graduate programs allow graduates and non-traditional students to succeed in the workplace or to re-tool and advance their careers through strongly degree-focused programs in occupational therapy; counseling psychology; medical imaging; nursing; health administration; biomedical sciences; education; communication; and heritage studies. Post-Baccalaureate and other certificates in gerontology, informatics, nursing leadership, clinical research, product registration, public health, integrative health, and communication for health care professionals are also offered. Regis College Online is in its second year. Offering graduate programs in health sciences and nursing, Regis College Online has enrolled nearly 1,000 graduate students who hail from states across the country, and a few beyond our borders. Regis College Online focuses on the same mission, to prepare students to serve “our Dear Neighbor without distinction” and to lead in their communities and fields. It aligns with the strategic priorities to increase Regis visibility, design sustainable growth initiatives, and expand Regis's footprint to increase access to higher education.

Population(s) Served

Regis College is committed, as part of the international community, to help build and enhance the human infrastructure of Haiti’s health system through the Regis In Haiti project. Even before the devastating earthquake in January 2010, Haiti struggled with a severe shortage of healthcare workers, poor infrastructure and routine lack of healthcare. Conceived in 2007, Regis In Haiti, an International Nurse Faculty Partnership Initiative (INFPI), aims to improve access to quality health care in Haiti by addressing the acute nursing shortage and the call for an advancement of nursing education in Haiti. The Young School of Nursing partnered with the Haitian Ministry of Health, private and public nursing school leaders in Haiti, and the Boston-based medical charity Partners In Health (PIH) to launch this innovative, advanced education and leadership program for Haitian nursing faculty (most of whom have the equivalent of an associate’s degree) across Haiti who earn a degree from the State University of Haiti. The third cohort of nursing faculty graduated in March 2018. For more than a decade Regis has worked alongside local partners in Haiti through Regis In Haiti to focus together on the advancement of nursing education and the nursing profession. Regis is also working in Haiti on a clinical care and education project in Grand Goave, with the Be Like Brit Foundation and Orphanage.

Population(s) Served

Regis is investing in its campus master plan, an initiative that includes future plans for both the completion of its athletic complex and construction of an additional science building or building wing. It also includes updating spaces in existing buildings, including science laboratories, and creating new student learning and living spaces (Maria Hall extention) and study/support locations (renovation of the Media Center to include the Lorraine Tegan Learning Common). This aligns with the strategic plan priority to optimize space and continued campuswide contemporization.

Mission Statement
Rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition and inspired by the social justice values of our founders, the Sisters of Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston, Regis College is a welcoming and inclusive community. We are called to provide access to an academically rigorous education through innovative learning opportunities and collaborative engagement at all degree levels. We educate the whole person, preparing our students to pursue excellence, to become change agents in their own communities, and to serve and lead as advocates for a more just and compassionate global society.
Organization & Goals
Regis is thriving and ambitiously moving forward as a multifaceted Catholic university located twelve miles west of Boston, a coeducational, multiethnic, multiracial, multifaith and intergenerational community that prepares undergraduate, graduate and continuing education students for engagement and service in a changing world. In the School of Arts and Sciences, the Richard & Sheila School of Nursing, the School of Health Sciences, and the School of Business and Communication, more than 3,000 students are enrolled annually in undergraduate, graduate, certificate and doctoral programs at the main campus in Weston, at Regis North in Lawrence, and through Regis College Online. Regis is today a small northern university. Sustaining and strengthening education in the liberal arts and sciences, promoting a strategic graduate focus on health care, and advocating scientific and technological endeavors, Regis thus continues to embrace the CSJ grace of unity and reconciliation by seeking academic excellence with gentleness and reading the signs of the times.
Regis continues to be led by President Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN—a twenty plus year veteran of Regis’s faculty and former dean. President Hays has ignited her vision for moving Regis forward to provide the best education possible for its students, and for mapping the journey the university will embark on to do so. Accomplishments include: · Creating and implementing a Master Plan for the campus and facilities over the next ten years that addresses improvements to the campus core and investments in renovations to modernize learning spaces and student life/recreation environments; · Launching publicly in April 2017 a comprehensive capital campaign to transform our campus, grow endowment and support curriculum initiatives; · Initiating new program development efforts and services to better prepare graduates to meet the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century – including Regis College Online offering graduate education in
Nursing and Health Sciences, Regis North in Lawrence (MA), and a new doctoral program offering the EdD in higher education leadership. Regis College’s Strategic Plan frames its goals from 2016-2021 and pillars include: · Build and strengthen community · Bolster fiscal engagement · Cultivate character. Eight objectives support attainment of these interwoven goals.
