Regis University to Shutter Henderson Campus in 2013 | Business
The Henderson campus of Regis University will shut down in August 2013, according to university officials.
Insufficient enrollment over several years is cited as the primary cause for the closure.
The Henderson campus, which has nine staff, one full-time faculty member and 35 affiliate faculty, will continue in operation until Aug. 31, 2013. There were 169 students enrolled at the Henderson campus in 2011.
“This was an extremely difficult decision," said Roxanne Gonzales, dean of the Regis University College for Professional Studies (CPS). "We are committed to assisting our current Henderson campus students with finishing their degrees,”
During the next four semesters, Regis University will implement a process to ensure currently enrolled Henderson Campus students will still be able to complete the academic requirements necessary for graduation. The University will review all Henderson campus ground-based students’ degree-plans to determine the courses each student needs to complete his or her degree, provide advising and to assist with transfers.
Regis University’s online degree programs will continue to be available to students in Henderson. The Regis University Testing Center located at Nellis AFB will continue to operate.
The Henderson campus, which serves adult students through the University’s College for Professional Studies, opened on Oct. 14, 1999. The campus is located at 1401 North Green Valley Parkway, Suite 100.
Since its founding, the Henderson campus has served more than 2,400 students.
“We’re grateful to the Henderson community for welcoming and embracing Regis University, and for allowing us to develop learners into leaders,” said Gonzales.
