Event History

In 2015, Regis University is proudly celebrating 27 years of providing outstanding health care programs. The Rueckert-Hartman College of Health Professions serves more than 3,000 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 two Summit events not only allowed alumni to reconnect to Regis, they also demonstrated that ongoing education continues to be a key value held in the Regis community.
