The Future of Regis

Our Jesuit tradition and heritage are not merely concepts we teach our students; they are principles we exercise across all departments and offices at Regis University. While many things may change over the years, our commitment to these principles remains an consistent thread carried through each initiative we encounter.

Strategic Plan

Following a year of visioning involving students, faculty, staff, alumni and the Board of Trustees, the Regis Rising Strategic Plan was enthusiastically endorsed by the Regis University Board of Trustees in April 2014. The plan continues to shape the future of Regis University and we have many successes to report.

In our strategic planning, we aim to strengthen our Jesuit, Catholic identity; link our students’ educations to careers that matter through enhanced experiential learning; promote entrepreneurial engagement and partnership with the Denver, regional, national, and international communities; and become an increasingly respected force as a university.

Campus Master Plan

Our master plan details how we plan to develop the Northwest Denver Campus – from the use of existing and future buildings, landscaping and transportation. With the approval of the University cabinet, we partnered with an architecture firm to create a 20-year vision for the physical development of the campus.

After an 18-month interactive process with 22 listening sessions, 3 community meetings and 1,163 total participants including students, faculty, staff, alumni and our athletic and library communities, we're excited for the future of Regis we've been about to outline in our master plan.

Master Plan Community Involvement

We have prioritized involving University community members and the broader community– neighborhood groups, community groups, businesses, government agencies and potentially interested parties. We engaged in exciting dialogue about the future as we developed the master plan. Opportunities included town hall meetings, informal “pop ups” and intercepts, listening sessions and surveys. We're grateful to the following members of the Master Plan Task Force for their collaboration, engagement and passion for ensuring the future of Regis is bright.
