Office of Mission

The Office of Mission works to build a culture committed to the Jesuit mission and supports opportunities to deepen understanding and live out the ideals rooted in our Jesuit, Catholic tradition. Committed to respect for all, we enable all members of the Regis community to grow as individuals and contribute to building a more just and humane world.

The Regis Mission

As a Jesuit Catholic university,
Regis seeks to build a more just and humane world
through transformative education
at the frontiers of faith, reason and culture.

Elements of Our Mission

As a university, Regis draws from wellsprings of ancient wisdom and explores new horizons of thought and imagination to pursue truth, strive for justice and cultivate beauty. In everything, Regis shepherds the development of the whole person in relation to the common good, asking, "How ought we to live?"

As Catholic, part of a global community of faith called to celebrate and embody God's love in the world, Regis educates diverse students for lives of service and meaning. Regis equips them with knowledge and skills to be discerning persons in solidarity with others, especially all who are poor or whose dignity has been violated, and empowers them to care for the Earth, our common home.

As Jesuit, rooted in an Ignatian spirituality of Christian discipleship and open to the sacred in all human cultures, Regis aspires to be a community of learners who labor for a transformed world and renewed ecosystem, and who journey as companions responsible to each other.

Office of Mission Initiatives

Exercising the very principles we teach, Regis offers three days of mission leave to faculty and staff members each year. Regis employees are able to use these days to volunteer, serve and give back to their local communities or enjoy spiritual retreats.

We are all companions in a shared mission. Regis provides opportunities such as retreats, learning communities and special events so that all employees can deepen their understanding of the mission and explore their own values and commitments.

Reflections on the Ignatian Year

When Pope Gregory XV canonized Ignatius in 1622, July 31 was chosen as his feast day. His task was to form a community of apostles who, though scattered over the globe, maintained union of mind and heart with their brothers. He founded what is now known as the Society of Jesus in 1556 and helped establish schools and universities around the world. As the Ignatian Year wraps up on July 31, we celebrate and reflect on the incredible impact he had on the world and all of us. Our reflection book can help guide you through the journey of St. Ignatius and how we can incorporate his spiritual teachings into our lives.
