Build a Strong Female Support Network

Our female-friendly program is ideal for women seeking to build a strong support network, and lasting professional relationships. Our dean, Dr. Elisa Robyn, plays an important role in the University’s faculty and student body. Some of Regis faculty include Gwendolyn Pascoe, an instructor in the Criminology program, and the director for the Southern Nevada Human Trafficking Task Force, which operates under the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, and Dr. Roberta Mancuso, who holds a Doctorate in Social Psychology, and is involved in curriculum development for the Masters in Criminology.

About Regis University

Regis University was founded in 1877 in Las Vegas, Nev., as Las Vegas College. The College was renamed Regis University in 1921 in honor of St. John Francis Regis, a French Jesuit and saint best known for his work with marginalized women and children. He was recognized as a saint by Pope Clement XII in 1737.

Regis University is now headquartered in Denver, Colorado, with five additional campuses throughout the state. Regis is one of 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States, and has been nationally recognized as a leader in higher education for adult learners, as well as a pioneer in online learning.

The motto on the University’s seal, "Men and Women in Service of Others," exemplifies Regis' mission and the elevated purpose of Jesuit education: to form men and women who use their knowledge to impact the world, as well as the desire of our faculty and staff to be of service to students and the community.
