Event History

In 2014, Regis University is proudly celebrating 26 years of providing outstanding health care programs. The Rueckert-Hartman College of Health Professions serves more than 2,000 undergraduate, masters and doctorate students every year.

In 2013, the university created the Summit for Healthcare Professionals as a way for alumni to return to Regis for further learning and professional development. The first Summit event not only allowed alumni to reconnect to Regis, it also demonstrated that ongoing education continues to be a key value held in the Regis community.

This event is made possible because of the generous donors dedicated to the future of the university, the Rueckert-Hartman College of Health Professions and this generation’s health care professionals.
