HISTORY

Dr. M.G. “Pat” Robertson founder and president of the Christian Broadcast Network (CBN), had an inspired vision of establishing a graduate-level institution that would train mature men and women for the challenge of representing Christ in their professions. In 1977, the vision materialized when CBN University was incorporated as a nonprofit education institution in Virginia Beach, Virginia. In the fall of 1978, students began classes in modest, rented facilities.

By October 1989, CBN University had grown from a School of Communication & the Arts to seven professional schools with nearly 800 students. On January 1, 1990, in recognition of this growth, the board of trustees voted to change the name of CBN University to Regent University. A “regent” is one who represents a king in his absence. For Regent University, a regent is one who represents Christ, our Sovereign, in whatever sphere of the life he or she may be called to serve Him.

Today, more than 10,000 students earn associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees at the school’s campus in Virginia Beach, Virginia, or via online learning. Our student body represents 64 countries; and over 29,000 alumni are making an impact in all sectors around the world.

Our academic programs are as rigorous as they are rewarding. Regent student teams regularly win national competitions in their fields of study, and our alumni have been honored for professional achievements in their disciplines.

Likewise, Regent campus buildings, designed within an architectural master plan, reflect a commitment to our nation’s colonial heritage but are also equipped with the latest educational technologies.

Certainly, the distinct mission of Regent has drawn students, administrators, and distinguished faculty and guest lecturers from around the world to contribute to its fulfillment. Regent employs 138 full-time and some 700 adjunct faculty, including former Attorney General John Ashcroft, a Distinguished Professor of Law and Government and Admiral Vern Clark (ret.), former Chief of Naval Operations, a Distinguished Professor of Leadership and Government. Review Regent University Facts for a closer look at the accomplishments and prominence Regent University shares with schools many times its age.

Beyond milestone events, dates, or facts and figures, Regent’s mission to combine Christianity and world-class education has kept the university on course. True to its well-established roots, Regent remains a premier educational institution dedicated to combining quality education with biblical teachings. The dramatic changes that have taken place are the result of divine inspiration and unwavering dedication to the mission as reflected in our motto Christian Leadership to Change the World.

OIA staff members consult with stakeholders representing each university department, center and academic program to achieve alignment with Regent’s mission and report assessment findings, coordinate regional accreditation reporting and show compliance with all standards as mandated by law or accreditation.

WEAVE: Weave is the assessment and accreditation management software the university uses for programmatic assessment, and specialized and regional accreditation. Contact ryanmur@regent.edu or rachsm3@regent.edu to receive a personalized Weave login.

Survey Calendar: The survey calendar records the release dates for all university-wide surveys. Surveys launch on a Wednesday and end on a Tuesday. Contact ryanmur@regent.edu or rachsm3@regent.edu to schedule a survey.

Course Catalogs: The Undergraduate and Graduate Catalog house all program-specific information related to degree completion.

Regent University is authorized to operate in the state of Virginia by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV). Regent University is regionally accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), as well as five specialized accrediting bodies. A complete list of the bodies that accredit or license Regent University is available on the accreditation webpage.

PROGRAM ASSESSMENT AND REVIEW

Program assessment and review requires faculty to evaluate the academic programs in which they teach to determine if the programs satisfy program learning outcomes. The main goal of program assessment is to determine if students are learning. As such, program assessment involves the creation, evaluation, and critique of learning outcomes, curriculum maps, and course content to determine if the present curriculum satisfies accreditation standards, program objectives, and the mission of the university.

PROGRAM REVIEW

Completed at the dean level, the Program Review process is designed to evaluate faculty credentials and the curriculum of each undergraduate and graduate program, as well as the programmatic support staff available to each school. Various elements of the Program Review feature concepts that must be reported in Regent’s SACSCOC report.

NONACADEMIC ASSESSMENT

Similar to academic programs, the University’s departments and various centers must also be assessed to determine if they meet their goals and objectives. Each department or center produces its purpose statement and goals, which are assessed and evaluated annually.

OIA ensures that it operates in compliance with regulations, laws, and policies established by external constituents, thereby helping the university manage risk.

The Higher Education Act requires colleges and universities to disclose certain information to current and prospective students.

  • Programs with Out-of-state Licensure

In order to be in compliance with federal regulations and the National Council for State Authorization and Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA), Regent has established specific landing pages for prospective and current students to determine if their degree-seeking program allows them to obtain licensure in the state in which they desire to work. Currently, certain programs in the School of Education and School of Psychology and Counseling require licensure:
