Office of the Provost

Welcome to the Office of the Provost website. Regis’ mission is to build a more just and humane world through transformative education at the frontiers of faith, reason and culture, and at this unique point in higher education and our own history, we are at the frontier of our future.

As Provost, I am honored to pursue a variety of responsibilities including ensuring academic quality and integrity, advocating for faculty and staff, and always centering students in our decisions. Regis has a wonderful balance of having both a dynamic academic portfolio and serving diverse student populations, while always pursuing cura personalis through accompaniment and other efforts.

Along with a dedicated staff, the Provost collaborates with several institutional units including our three Colleges and their respective schools and departments, and other major academic support units and offices. Our office provides the opportunities, infrastructure, and resources to ensure that our academic enterprise is one of impactful productivity and unwavering warmth and support, and provides the accountability for creating and protecting a climate of anti-racism, inclusivity, and equity.

This website provides information on the various offices under the Provost, important resources, and information for how to get in touch with our office. Please feel free to reach out should you need anything – as we seek to develop individuals for and with others, that starts with our office being here for and with you.

  • Approving new majors, certificates, specializations, and major program initiatives
  • Recommending new degree programs and major initiatives to the Regis University Board of Trustees
