The Associate Vice President of Community Collaboration serves as a catalyst, collaborator, and connector for various internal and external stakeholders and furthers the University’s mission by connecting University and community knowledge. The title “community collaboration” was chosen to demonstrate the reciprocal nature of campus — community relationships and to affirm our commitment to work together for a common good. The AVP will be the primary coordinator of all efforts by Regis University with the external community, including but not limited to government organizations, non-profits, neighborhood organizations, grants directly related to community outreach and other important community contacts. In 2016, the AVP has focused on implementing the year three goals of the Cultivate Health grant, supported by the Colorado Health Foundation to increase opportunities for active living and healthy eating in the Regis neighborhoods. Other initiatives include collaboration with the City of Westminster to bring economic and infrastructure development that improves health to the transit corridor along Federal Boulevard; supported by an Invest Health grant by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Reinvestment Fund. Guided by the values of St. Ignatius, we endorse the core values to build meaningful relationships, connect faith and justice, respond creatively and make meaningful change.
