Crest Club

The purpose of the Crest Club is to provide social and spiritual opportunities for University alumni (a) who graduated 40 years ago or more or (b) who have reached their 60th birthday. All alumni who meet the above criteria are invited to participate in annual traditions such as a tour of historic churches, a Day of Recollection and Spring Fling.

The Crest Club Leadership Committee develops and promotes events with members serving as leaders in the alumni community.

Dinner for Twelve

Dinner for Twelve connects our alumni with current students to share a meal and conversation. Alumni volunteers act as hosts, leading discussions about the Regis experience and what happens after graduation. Dinners can have a theme or discussion topic and can also center around shared experience such as major or club participation. We can help you decide on a format that meets your needs. Currently, we are looking for alumni who would be willing to host via Zoom, as well as alumni who would be interested in hosting in person once it is deemed safe for all participants.

Spirit of Loretto Committee

At the heart of Regis University's Rueckert-Hartman College for Health Professions (RHCHP) and the School of Professional Advancement (SPA) lies Loretto Heights College (LHC). Founded in Denver, Colorado in 1891 by the Sisters of Loretto, LHC began as Loretto Heights Academy, a Catholic elementary and secondary school for girls.

In the summer of 1988, Loretto Heights College closed its doors 70 years after its founding in Denver by the Sisters of Loretto. Three of its academic programs moved to Regis College and provided the foundation for the Rueckert-Hartman College for Health Professions and the College for Professional Studies, ultimately allowing us to become Regis University in 1991.

The Spirit of Loretto (SOL) Committee was formed in 2002 in response to the growing need to serve our Loretto alumni. Its mission is to keep the spirit of Loretto Heights College alive by perpetuating the values, heritage and traditions of LHC. The SOL Committee is comprised of alums from various decades who meet monthly to plan and implement special events and programs that serve our LHC alumni.

Each year the SOL Committee solicits nominations for its annual Lumen Christi and Distinguished Alumna/us awards. The Lumen Christi Award, named for Max Di Julio’s Christmas choral composition, is given to an outstanding and beloved member of the Loretto Heights faculty or staff. Deceased faculty and staff members may be nominated. The Distinguished Alumna/us Award is given for outstanding lifetime achievement and/or significant contributions to the community. Deceased alumni may be nominated. Awards are given at the LHC Luncheon held during the reunion weekend.

All Loretto Heights alumni and their guests are invited to events planned by the SOL Committee.


Spirit of Loretto Awards

The Spirit of Loretto Awards are presented annually at the LHC Reunion and Awards Luncheon.

Please review with the nominee their resume, and briefly the lifetime achievements they are proud of, especially those which were influenced by Sisters of Loretto and their motto “Work for Justice and Act for Peace.”

Nominations will be collected by Regis University Alumni Engagement staff on behalf of the Spirit of Loretto Committee, which will make the final selection(s). At the discretion of the SOL Committee, one or more SOL Awards may be given annually.
