Meet our New Dean of Dayton Memorial Library, Dan H. Lawrence!
Dan H. Lawrence, the director of library services for the Community College of Aurora, has been named Regis’ new library dean, effective July 10, 2023.
Lawrence, who has led the CCA’s library since 2016, also served as a member of the college’s Hispanic Serving Institution Task Force and co-chaired its Open Education Resource Task Force. He spearheaded initiatives to improve campus diversity, equity and inclusion efforts as chair of the assessment committee for the college’s Inclusive Excellence Council. Students of color represent 65% percent of the college’s enrollment.
“I’m thrilled to join an institution where I share values for justice, community, and service, “ Lawrence said “ As the incoming library dean, I am genuinely excited for the opportunity to work alongside the incredible staff of the Library, Student Disability Services and University Testing, and Learning Commons to see the Dayton Memorial Library serve as a vibrant hub for learning and research, student success, community engagement, connectedness, and belonging.”
Lawrence earned his Ed.D. in Leadership for Educational Equity in Higher Education from the University of Colorado-Denver this spring after authoring a dissertation on “Latine/Hispanic Alum Identity and Perceptions of Institutional Structures and Experiences for Success in a Community College HSI.” He also has a master’s in educational technology from the University of Northern Colorado, a master’s in library and information science from San Jose State University and a bachelor’s in English literature with a minor in Celtic studies from the University of California, Berkeley.

DML Exhibit: Spirit of Loretto Exhibit
Dayton Memorial Library’s Archives & Digital Collections team had the special privilege of putting together a two-part exhibit for the Spirit of Loretto reunion held at Regis on July 15th. Loretto Heights College was formerly an all-women's Catholic college in southwest Denver and was acquired by Regis University in the 1980’s. The first part of the exhibit, located in DML’s fireplace lounge on the 2nd floor, highlights photographs that show the experiences and memories of Loretto graduates from the 1960s-1980's. A special tribute is made for Sr. Frances Marie Walsh, a long-serving president and beloved steward of Loretto Heights College. The second part of the exhibit, located just off the fireplace lounge in the Hartmann Gallery, displays photographs and materials that tell the story of the early days of the college from the 1880’s to the 1950’s. Importantly, this part of the exhibit also serves as a commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Loretto Heights School of Nursing (LHSON) that still lives on at Regis today.
The 1960’s-1980’s and Sr. Frances Marie Walsh portions of the exhibit will remain up through the end of August. The early Loretto Heights history and nursing display in the Hartmann Gallery will be up through the end of September and will be part of the LHSON 75th anniversary celebration during Blue & Gold Weekend.
We hope you stop by to take a peek at this special exhibit to experience the “spirit of Loretto” that is still present on our campus.
