Regis University was founded in 1877 as a Jesuit college in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is the only Catholic university in the state and is part of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. Originally named Las Vegas College, it was renamed Regis College in 1921 to honor St. John Francis Regis, a Jesuit priest who ministered to the poor and marginalized during the 17th century. In 1991, the school changed its name to Regis University to reflect its commitment to providing quality education that serves all students.
Throughout its history, Regis University has been committed to providing educational opportunities for underserved populations such as women, minority students and first-generation college students. In 1977, Regis became one of the first universities in the U.S. to offer a degree program specifically designed for adult learners—the Adult Degree Program (ADP). This program allowed working adults an opportunity to receive an accredited degree without having to leave their job or family obligations behind. The ADP is now available online for those living outside of Colorado or unable to attend classes on campus due to other commitments or health reasons. Today, nearly half of all Regis students are adult learners using this program. Check LOCALCOLLEGEEXPLORER for a list of community colleges in Delaware.
In addition, Regis has long been dedicated to social justice and service learning initiatives both on campus and within its surrounding communities. Through partnerships with organizations like Habitat for Humanity and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, Regis students have been able to make a tangible difference in their local neighborhoods while developing important leadership skills through hands-on experiences with community service projects throughout Colorado and beyond.
