Black History Month at Regis

Join Regis University in celebrating Black History Month as we pay homage and honor to the generations of Black History, Excellence, and tribulations of the past 400 years while also highlighting the presence, impact, and beauty of African American Culture throughout the United States and the world.  

This year, Regis University’s Black Student Alliance (BSA) will lead our Ranger community through events that celebrate Black art, faith, culture, and business and continue Regis’ work to cultivate a rich and culturally affirming campus.
