Regis’ top priority is our students' success. New students are supported through a First-Year Experience which includes a curriculum and co-curriculum that emphasizes:

  • Successfully transitioning students from high school to college;
  • Learning about the mission of Regis and the values of its founders through service and community engagement;
  • Connecting students to resources that support their social, academic, emotional, and spiritual development;
  • Fostering student-faculty connections with the First-Year Experience faculty member also serving as a student’s first year academic advisor.

The remainder of our Core Curriculum focuses on providing students with the Essential Learning Outcomes in accordance with the Association of American Colleges and Universities and is in line with the mission of our founders, the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Boston, and the Catholic intellectual tradition.

The focus of the Regis Core is to develop and graduate well-rounded students who are prepared to enter the workforce with grounding and knowledge in the following areas:

  • Ethical Reasoning
  • Critical Thinking and Writing
  • Oral Communication
  • Quantitative Reasoning
  • Scientific Reasoning
  • Aesthetic Thinking
  • Historical Reasoning
  • Global Thinking

In addition, our Finucane and O’Sullivan Institute for Learning provides comprehensive tutoring services and student support coaching. Other offices at Regis provide resources for students interested in internship and career development, international opportunities, as well as an array of additional student engagement and support services, including:
