General Information
Although an examination of Regis High School's website and social media pages does not indicate the presence of anti-racism initiatives, reporting has indicated that the school is taking steps towards implementing a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative, including hiring a Director of DEI and pledging to eliminate implicit bias.

Activity

  • Symbolic Actions

    A Diversity Steering Committee appears to have been formed, and a Director of DEI may be hired. The new DEI director is to be "involved in every aspect of the school (admissions, curriculum, 'professional development for all faculty and staff', strategic planning, hiring, and 'programming for student formation')."

  • Symbolic Actions

    Regis pledged to be "free from any racial or other bias, either implicit or explicit" in a July 8 message to alumni.

  • Resources

    As part of the theme of “Race: School, Country, Church," Regis "students and faculty have participated in open, honest discussions... Such conversations feed into our broader Race at Regis initiative."

  • Symbolic Actions

    After a Black Lives Matter petition was created by the student body, Regis created a "Race at Regis" initiative. There is a committee of 15 alumni, trustees, and administrators working on the "Race at Regis" work.

  • Resources

    Regis announced that, as part of its "Race at Regis" initiative, it will be creating two new positions: a Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and a new recruiter in the Admissions Office.

  • Symbolic Actions

    Regis announced on April 23, 2021 that "the Diversity Club and IDEALS, a student-led leadership committee, invited Regians to reflect on the Chauvin trial as well as the spate of violence and killings our nation has witnessed in recent days." Soon after, the school held a forum.
