The seeds for Regis University were planted in 1877 in Las Vegas, New Mexico, when a group of exiled Italian Jesuits founded a small school called Las Vegas College. In 1884, the school relocated to Morrison, Colorado, and was renamed College of the Sacred Heart. Thanks to a generous donation of land from John Brisben Walker, the college was able to settle in its current Denver location in 1887. 


Contemporary learners are non-traditional students who tend to be self directed, older, working adults, often with various family, community and work obligations. For these learners who are intrinsically motivated and problem-centered, the undergraduate models of service learning can be perceived as burdensome and disconnected from specific learning outcomes. Further, the students might feel that their time and the ways they currently give back to their community and family are not being honored or respected. For these reasons The College of Contemporary Liberal Studies (CCLS) is adopting a contemporary view of service learning that aligns more closely with the needs of the adult learner that CCLS serves.


The mission of the Regis University Research and Scholarship Council (URSC) is to promote and support scholarly, research, creative and interdisciplinary projects within Regis University. To accomplish this URSC aims to help support faculty and student projects that will contribute to the body of human knowledge and enrich the educational experience. All proposals must be based in research and scholarship and have the potential to contribute to the field or discipline. Proposals must constitute an endeavor that advances human knowledge in a manner that demonstrates in depth understanding of the context in which the endeavor occurs.
