Our Mission

Rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition and inspired by the social justice values of our founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston, Regis College is a welcoming and inclusive community. We are called to provide access to an academically rigorous education through innovative learning opportunities and collaborative engagement at all degree levels. We educate the whole person, preparing our students to pursue excellence, to become change agents in their own communities, and to serve and lead as advocates for a more just and compassionate global society.

Inclusive excellence is the cornerstone of the legacy and charism of Regis College. “The Dear Neighbor” is each one of us. As members of the Regis community, we are called to love, serve, and respect each other “without distinction” for who we are, where we come from, or who we are becoming. We strive to create an environment in which each member of the community can develop a sense of belonging, where diversity is championed and identities are celebrated. A vibrant university means a vibrant community, where we all take responsibility for providing a welcoming environment.

Regis College is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (formerly the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.)
