Collegiality. Collaboration. Diversity. Dialogue. Openness. Opportunity. It's all here for you.
Consider your past work. What mattered to you most? Ask any student, staff or faculty member at Regis College and you'll hear words like inclusiveness, community, and supportiveness. It's no coincidence. The mission at Regis, a non-profit college near Boston and the 9th fastest-growing college in the U.S., reflects our Catholic identity which calls on us to serve our "dear neighbor without distinction."
Here, we've cultivated a climate of innovation and entrepreneurship in which every staff member is encouraged to contribute based on ideas, not job titles.
At Regis, diversity and inclusion, social justice, and community are not marketing buzzwords-they are core values. We are committed to recruiting a staff and faculty that reflects the diversity of our student body. A recipient of the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award, Regis is proud to have a student population including 28% of undergraduates who are first-generation and 32% who identify as minority.
Now, think of what matters to you most in your next job. If your colleagues are a key priority, you couldn't have come to a better place.
