Actions Taken

Admissions Policies
  • On June 30, 2023, Regis' President published a "letter in response to the Supreme Court's decision" on affirmative action which states the following: "While the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on affirmative action creates significant access challenges for our students of color, legal framework changes do not alter Regis University’s commitment to diversity and access as a strength and core value. We believe that this decision overlooks the importance of racial diversity in meeting our society's needs, which needs diverse leaders and leaders who value and understand diverse perspectives...This decision does not change what we have always done. We reaffirm our commitment to fostering an inclusive community of caring and to recruit and retain a diverse campus for the benefit of all."
Anti-Racism, Bias, and Diversity Training
  • The Physical Therapy Department incorporates "Student Awareness, Training and Inclusion" into its program whereby "students complete the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) to form an individualized development plan that will increase their skills in providing culturally responsive care." 
Curriculum Changes and Requirements
  • Regarding its "undergraduate core educational experience," the 2022-2023 Regis University Catalog states, "By challenging students to develop the analytical skills necessary to understand relationships of power and privilege in contemporary society, the core educational experience strives to cultivate respect for human diversity and a special concern for the poor and the oppressed."
  • As part of Regis' "Integrative Core" curriculum, sophomores must take the course "Diversity and Cultural Tradition," which "[e]xplores issues of diversity by examining the issues of groups that historically have been oppressed."
  • According to the Regis 2022-2023 Academic Catalog, the English major "takes a Diversity Across the Curriculum approach, so most courses discuss aspects of historical or current oppression and marginalization."
  • Regis' School of Physical Therapy infuses diversity, equity, and inclusion into its curriculum through "Culturally Responsive Teaching" and teaching such topics as "Health Justice."
  • Regis University hosted a series of conversations, "Good Trouble Conversations on Race and Justice", focusing on student activism and a "History of Racism and Resilience".
  • As part of the "Good Trouble Conversations on Race and Justice" initiative, the university hosted the "DESTINY: Navigating in a White World" seminar during the Spring 2022 semester.
  • In 2019, a faculty member's publication was released regarding the "Challenges and Coping Mechanisms of Whites Committed to Antiracism."
  • The university announced the creation of the "President’s Council on Race and Social Justice," which "represents [its] continued focus and commitment to creating a more inclusive, antiracist campus."
  • The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion published the schedule for its Fall 2023 "Good Trouble Conversations on Race and Justice" series and states, "Join us for moderated, open and free discussions about current race and justice topics and how we can effect positive change."
  • The Social Justice and Diversity Committee at Regis "provides leadership for RUSGA in the areas of diversity, inclusion and social justice" through the programming and hosting of events.
  • Regis University Library provides a variety of resources on racism (includes Black Lives Matter readings) and states that "[r]acism in the United States is systemic and pervasive."
  • As part of Regis' 2023-2024 Academic Catalog, the Racial Justice minor "centers the concerns and experiences of US Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian and Pacific Islander, and other People of Color (POC), while also exploring the roots of whiteness because concepts of race and ethnicity are fundamental to the power of intersecting systems of both oppression and resistance." Additionally, the minor "focuses on Structural/Historical Racism, Interpersonal Racism/Bias, Identity and Social Construction, Resistance Movements, Antiracism, and Race/Religion/Jesuit Values - in an effort to dismantle racial hierarchies and build equitable communities."
Symbolic Actions
  • Regis published its "Diversity Pledge" which states the following: "I pledge to stand up to all forms of hate, bigotry and bullying. I will not stay silent in the face of intolerance based on race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, religion, ability or any other identity. I will work together with my peers to create safer, more inclusive communities for all and will uphold our Jesuit value of honoring the dignity in all individuals."
