Regis College seeks nominations and applications for the Associate Vice President for Inclusive Excellence and Chief Diversity Officer (AVP/CDO). Reporting to President Antoinette Hays, the AVP/CDO will create linkages among all stakeholders to develop and implement a new strategic vision for inclusive excellence for Regis. Located in Weston, Massachusetts, Regis is a leading Catholic coed university with over 3,000 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students in the arts, sciences and health professions devoted to engagement, service and advancement in a global community. Regis is growing thanks to an innovative vision and strategic decision-making by University leadership. Four schools, a satellite campus and online degree programs provide transformational educational experiences for students, particularly those from underserved populations. Twenty-one percent of Regis students are from diverse backgrounds and 23 percent are first-generation college students. Thirty-five percent of undergraduate students are Pell-eligible. Rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition, Regis continues to find inspiration in the values of its founders, the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Boston, which include the pursuit of truth, service to the dear neighbor, social justice, excellence with gentleness, gracious hospitality and welcoming all without distinction. Regis seeks to educate the whole person, preparing students to pursue excellence, become agents of change in their own communities, and serve and lead as advocates of a more just and compassionate global society. This is an institution that is committed to the dynamic and complex work of diversity, and whose members are eager and interested in broadening their understanding and being more collaborative as they tackle sensitive topics and bring the College to a place of greater inclusivity, justice and equity.
