Regis, a leading Catholic university in Greater Boston, has strengthened its commitment to global citizenship by partnering with the Millennium Campus Network (MCN), a non-profit that prepares students to become leaders.
MCN provides an innovative year-long experience for students which includes student-led global campaigns, networking opportunities with students from over 50 countries, and a four-month fellowship program.
MCN Executive Director Sam Vaghar will kick off the partnership at a forum at Regis on February 28th at 6 pm in the Upper Student Center. He will present, From Res Hall to the White House: Launching Your Career with Impact. The event is sponsored by the Regis Center for Global Connections.
"Regis has been at the forefront of social change in Boston, Haiti, and far beyond. It is in the social fabric and DNA of this institution," said Vaghar. "We are honored to welcome Regis into the MCN community and I look forward to meeting with students and learning about their passions."
Valeria Al-Khatib, a junior political science major, has been impressed with the fellowship program. She enjoys a professional camaraderie with student leaders at other universities who share similar experiences.
Taylor Garner, a sophomore political science major, said the experience has been amazing so far. "MCN is truly helping me attain my personal and professional goal of helping people around the world overcome social, economic and political problems," said Garner. "The entrepreneur from India, the virologist from Scotland, and the lawyer from Pakistan have become my friends and allies. I wouldn't have met them without the MCN connection."
"I'm proud that Regis is a Millennium Campus and our students can explore their roles in our global society," said Regis President Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN. "Sam is committed to talent development on a global scale and prepares the leaders that our world needs now and into the future."
