Leaders face the world with a confident, healthy sense of themselves as endowed with talent, dignity, and the potential to lead. They find these attributes in others and passionately commit to honoring and unlocking the potential they find in themselves and in others. They create environments bound and energized by loyalty, affection, and mutual support – places marked by “greater love than fear.” Chris Lowney, Heroic Leadership. Our goal at Regis University is to challenge you to prepare yourself to be a leader committed to the development of a more just world. How will you make your Regis experience one that will develop the leadership characteristics Lowney identifies above within you?
