Honorary doctorate recipients

The Regis University Board of Trustees has voted to award an honorary doctorate of humane letters to the following:


Dr. A. Benedict Cosimi, Regis Class of 1960, is chief emeritus of transplantation at Massachusetts General Hospital. His long and distinguished career was built on groundbreaking work in organ transplantation. When he started medical school after graduating from Regis, he heard transplants weren’t possible. Yet he went on to establish New England’s first liver transplant program in 1983, first pancreas transplant program in 1986, first intestine transplant program in 1991, and the world’s first successful immune tolerance induction program to reduce transplant rejection in 1998. He was the 32nd president of the American Society of Transplant Surgeons and president of the 2006 World Transplant Congress.


Father Sean Carroll, S.J., is the executive director of the Kino Border Initiative in Nogales, Mexico. His work exploring a new migrant ministry in southern Arizona and northern Mexico led to the inauguration of KBI. Under his leadership, KBI serves migrants on both sides of the border by providing humanitarian assistance such a meals, clothing, first aid and shelter for women and children. The organization also gives presentations at parishes, schools and organizations on immigration-related topics, including the worldwide struggles of refugees and migrants. A graduate of Stanford University, he serves on the board of trustees of the University of San Francisco and on the board of Southern Arizona Interfaith.
