The Center for Inclusive Excellence
Aspirations for Inclusive Excellence
To achieve inclusive excellence as a goal, we at Regis aspire to be guided by excellence in our learning, teaching, student development, institutional function, and engagement in the local and global communities. The concept of inclusion applies to how we engage with the diversity that our community members bring, so that all can thrive and be served without distinction. For us at Regis to achieve the goal of inclusive excellence, we aspire to engage in the following activities:
- Pursue a set of objectives that focus on diversity in a broad sense
- Focus on the intellectual and social development of our students by offering courses of study that challenge and address structural marginalization and inequity in society
- Pay attention to the diversity that all members of the community bring and provide processes for them to thrive
- Position diversity and inclusion as fundamental to institutional excellence
Regis Inclusive Excellence statement and Mission
Inclusive Excellence statement
As members of the Regis community, we are called to love, serve, and respect each other for who we are, what we believe and value, and where we come from without distinction. Inclusive excellence is the cornerstone of the legacy and charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph. The Dear Neighbor is each one of us, and as members of a Catholic institution of higher education, we are called to transform and enlighten the society in which we live.
The Center for inclusive Excellence under the advisement of the Regis Inclusive Excellence Council seeks to create an environment and culture in which all types of diversity are valued, engaged with, have access, and all contribute to the holistic development of our community, and the institutional excellence of the University.
Note from the Chief Diversity Officer
In current times of volatility, uncertainty, and complexity, I continue to be inspired by Regis’ mission and its commitment to the themes of Catholic social teaching. I am also inspired by the core values of the Sisters of St. Joseph which we espouse as a learning community. As we build on the Inclusive Excellence efforts from our founders, I am dedicated to working with my colleagues from multiple departments and levels, students, and our surrounding community to create an institution that is inclusive, just, welcoming, and responsive.
