2 Exhibits at the DML for Blue and Gold weekend!
Memories of Loretto
This year, the Loretto Heights School of Nursing celebrates its 75th anniversary (forty years at Loretto Heights College and thirty-five years at Regis University). The Memories of Loretto exhibit showcases historical artifacts from Dayton Memorial Library’s Archives and Special Collections, charting the college’s rich legacy with roots dating back to the 1890s when the Sisters of Loretto established a girls' academy in south Denver.
Brown and Gold(en) Jubilee: 50th Anniversary of the Class of 1973 and Memorable Moments in Regis History
Jubilees mark a special anniversary of an event, and a celebration of fifty years is called a Golden Jubilee. The 1970s mark 50 years since the first group of women graduated from Regis University. This exhibit contains photos, newspaper clippings, and artifacts from the archives which highlight the ways in which women were received. Also featured are the infamous brown and gold beanies which were worn in the 1930s and through 1970s. Archives staff uncovered their original, questionable, and controversial use!

Regis Students & Grads with Disabilities Gain Federal Work Experience Through Innovative Program
This summer, a number of Regis University students and recent graduates with disabilities will have the opportunity to seek internships or permanent employment with federal agencies, thanks to the Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP).
The WRP connects federal agencies and, in some cases, private employers, with college students and recent graduates with disabilities seeking to demonstrate their abilities in the workplace through summer internships or long-term jobs. Over the years, thousands of college students, graduate students and alumni have participated in the program, working in diverse roles in federal workplaces across the nation.
Applications for the WRP are due in mid-October. Students can learn more by visiting WRP.gov or contact Amanda Cusson, Employer Relations Specialist for the Center for Career and Professional Development. You can reach her by phone at 303.458.3509 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What’s in a Name?
In recent years, a growing number of college disability service offices have changed their names. Many have opted to use the term “accessibility” instead of “disability” or to use a combination of the two.
The Student Disability Services (SDS) office at Regis wants to know how students feel about a possible name change. Students are encouraged to stop by the SDS office (241 Clarke Hall) and drop a stone in a jar to voice their preference for the office name. As an added bonus, Regis Freshmen will earn a stamp in their Passport for participating in the poll.
Some Arguments for Keeping Disability in The Name:
· Disability is an important piece of diversity and of a person’s identity and should be acknowledged
· Owning the term disability can provide a sense of pride
· Removing the term implies that there is something wrong or shameful about having a disability
Some Arguments for Removing Disability from the Office Name:
· The term disability might prevent some students from contacting the office because they do not personally identify as being disabled (e.g. students with dyslexia or a mental health diagnosis)
· The term disability is stigmatized and is inherently negative due to the “dis” prefix
Some Arguments for Using Both Disability and Access(ability) in the Office Name:
· The combined name reflects a sense of disability pride, but also includes a different term because some students face stigma and may have misconceptions about the word disability
· Adding the term accessibility emphasizes that the office is a resource for everyone on campus, regardless of whether they personally identify as having a disability
Please stop by Student Disability Services in Clarke 241 before December 1st to let them know what you think about the office name.
