God has blessed Regent University with great abundance this year, and I want to share the good news with you. From the beginning of our school, God called us to excellence, innovation and integrity and to set the bar high in every arena. You will see the fulfillment of that in the stories you are about to read in this special issue. Regent is leading the way in Christian higher education through award-winning quality and faith integration.
Here are just a few of the outstanding accomplishments this year:
- Nearly 10,000 students from 134 COUNTRIES have enrolled in LUXVERA®, our massive open online course platform that launched in January. LUXVERA, meaning Light and Truth, allows us to teach the world through free, highly engaging, world-class Regent University courses.
- The Law School is the #2 Global Oxford Moot Court Champion, rivaling competitors from University of Oxford and University of Cambridge and other global competitors. Total national and international awards: 67.
- The Princeton Review places our law faculty among the Top 10 Law Faculty in the nation. Also, 83 percent of law alumni are employed within nine months of graduation in law firms, business & industry, government, public interest, and other industries.
- The new, accredited Biophysical Science program will launch in fall 2014 along with a stunning, high-tech Biology Lab. The Honors Program is also set to launch by 2015. These undergraduate programs are attracting new scholars and allow us to prepare them for careers in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and many others. Imagine future Christian leaders at the forefront of these critical fields.
- Our School of Psychology & Counseling Psy.D. students obtained an unprecedented 100-percent match rate from the National Matching Service (NMS), an organization that pairs students with high-level internship programs. The national average is 62 percent. Our programs and students continue to break records.
Through God’s favor, our entrepreneurial spirit has created innovative Christian leaders around the world, and Regent has accomplished more than we dreamed possible. And the best is yet to come!
We expect exponential growth in the coming year. We seek your prayers and ask you to tell others about what we are doing here at Regent.
