Letter from the Director
December 1, 2016
To the Regis College Community:
During this time of uncertainty, I continue to be inspired by the work and core values of the Sisters of St. Joseph. Our institution came out of a vision and commitment to social justice. These radical women have spent their lives working for “unity and reconciliation where there is brokenness, to help people become whole and holy, individually and together.” To me, there has never been a better time to reaffirm our identity and commitment to the work of the sisters.
Our community welcomes all – we strive to be inclusive and equitable every day. We need to show one another love, kindness and service. This election has made members of our community – particularly women, immigrants, people of color, Muslims, Jews, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ persons – feel hurt and isolated.
We must also engage in discussions around politics, faith, race and identity to address global needs of the world and to be educated citizens working to find creative solutions for the problems we face. As an institution of higher education, we have always been a place welcome to reflection, crucial thinking and debate. We need to engage in work of education to ensure the laws and policies enacted work towards justice and concern for our community, the country and the world.
I look forward to doing this together.
Sarah Gallenberg Maloney
