Institutional Learning Outcomes The Regis Nine are Regis University’s institution-wide learning outcomes. Through our assessment process, we are committed to these nine outcomes as an ideal in the formation and education of our students. THE REGIS NINE ENCOMPASS THE KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS, AND VALUES THAT WE BELIEVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL TO THE PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL GROWTH OF OUR STUDENTS, EMPLOYEES AND COMMUNITY. At Regis University, we seek to educate the whole person (cura personalis) in three important ways: teaching academic content (knowledge-based learning), developing practical skills and abilities for use in the "real world" (skill-based learning), and instilling a commitment to leadership, service, and ethical and social responsibility (value-based education). We expect students to exhibit the Regis Nine at an appropriate level throughout their academic and extracurricu-lar endeavors at Regis University. Similarly, continuous quality improvement efforts in our administrative and academic support units are reflective of the extent to which employees have integrated the Regis Nine in their daily work.

In the Regis educational model, one’s commitment to ethical and social responsibility is equal in value to one’s knowledge and skills.
