THE UNIVERSITY MESSAGE FROM OUR CHANCELLOR Our nation and our world are faced with tremendous challenges—challenges that sometimes can seem insurmountable. The eyes of the Lord go to and fro over the whole earth to show himself strong to those whose hearts are loyal to him. God will do remarkable things through those who believe in Him and say yes and amen when they see an opportunity to serve. This is why Regent University was founded—to provide you with a place to sharpen your skills and prepare you to help transform the world through Christian leadership. Regent University is an academic environment where Christian leaders are taught to discern and respond to the times. And through God’s grace, this university has become a leading center for thought and action. Our graduates are servant leaders who are providing godly solutions to many of the challenges we face as a society. If there were ever a time to get involved in a worthy cause, this is that time. Regent University exists for such a time as this. America—and the world—need Christian leadership, and you are one of those leaders. I invite you to seize this opportunity. Be a part of what God is doing in these dramatic days. Cooperate with God and become a leader to your generation. And know that we at Regent University stand ready to assist you in fulfilling your academic and professional goals. Gordon Robertson Chancellor Regent University Page 7

MISSION STATEMENT Preamble Regent University is an institution of higher learning that exists to bring glory to God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ through the work of the Holy Spirit. Vision Our vision is to be the most influential, Christian, transformational university in the world. Mission Regent University serves as a center of Christian thought and action to provide excellent education through a biblical perspective and global context equipping Christian leaders to change the world. PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION Regent University is a Christ-centered institution. The Board of Trustees, as well as the faculty and staff of the university, is committed to an evangelical interpretation and application of the Christian faith. The campus community is closely identified with the present-day renewal movement, which emphasizes the gifts, fruits, and ministries of the Holy Spirit. It is expected that our students will both understand and agree to receive an education in accordance with the following articles. That the Holy Bible is the inspired, infallible and authoritative source of Christian doctrine and precept. That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. That man was created in the image of God but as a result of sin is lost and powerless to save himself. That the only hope for man is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, the virgin-born Son of God, who died to take upon Himself the punishment for the sin of mankind, and who rose from the dead, so that by receiving Him as Savior and Lord, man is redeemed by His blood. That Jesus Christ will personally return to earth in power and glory. That the Holy Spirit indwells those who receive Christ for the purpose of enabling them to live righteous and holy lives. That the Church is the Body of Christ and is comprised of all those who, through belief in Christ, have been spiritually regenerated by the indwelling Holy Spirit. The mission of the church is worldwide evangelization and the nurturing and making disciples of Christians. HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY Dr. M. G. “Pat” Robertson, founder of the Christian Broadcasting 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, that vision materialized when CBN University was incorporated as a nonprofit educational institution in Virginia Beach, Virginia. In the fall of 1978, 77 students began classes in modest, rented facilities. By October 1989, CBN University had grown from a School of Communication and 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 us at Regent University, a regent is one who represents Christ, our Sovereign, in whatever sphere of life he or she may be called to serve Him. The university has grown to 11,000 students earning associates, bachelors, masters, or doctoral degrees at our Virginia Beach Campus or online via the worldwide web. Regent University Page 8

STANDARD OF PERSONAL CONDUCT Regent University encourages a close and edifying relationship between faculty and students, one that will deepen the spiritual growth of each and stimulate a vigorous intellectual life in the Regent community. In order to accomplish these aims, it is imperative that Regent University faculty, staff, and students conduct themselves in a Christ-like and professional manner and maintain an exemplary and involved lifestyle. Regular church and chapel attendance and participation in the activities of the Regent community and its founding organization are encouraged for students and expected for faculty and staff. In addition, the following expectations apply: Regent University requires members of the Regent community—faculty, staff, and students—to refrain from the illegal use of drugs and the abuse of addictive substances controlled by law. Regent also forbids the use of alcohol, illicit drugs and tobacco on campus and prohibits the abuse of these substances by the Regent community. The Apostle Paul exhorted the body of Christ that, if they truly loved their fellow man, they would set aside their personal freedom by refraining from behavior that might be a stumbling block to their weaker brother. Regent University encourages members of the Regent community to exercise their personal responsibility and, guided by Paul’s admonition, appropriately set aside their personal freedom and refrain from the use of alcohol, illicit drugs and tobacco. The full substance abuse policy is printed in the Student Handbook. Student discipline: Enrolled students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the Honor Code and the Standard of Personal Conduct. Students shall be disciplined for actions that violate these policies which include, but are not limited to, academic dishonesty, theft or misuse of property, threats to the health and safety of others, abuse or intimidation, sexual misconduct, violation of housing rules or regulations or conduct deemed unlawful. The full Standard of Personal Conduct and student discipline policy is printed in the Student Handbook, which is located online at CAMPUS FACILITIES The Virginia Beach Campus is comprised of eight stately Georgian buildings. In addition, several student housing facilities with varied configurations from resident halls to apartments are on or near the main campus. The campus is a fascinating study of architecture accented with arched windows and hand-hewn brick. It is located just a few miles from the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, skirted by 28 miles of beach. Beyond the main campus, others are earning Regent degrees online. Built in 1979, the Administration Building is the original building on campus. The building houses the offices of the Chancellor, Academic Affairs, Chief Financial Officer, Administrative Services, Facilities & Engineering, Human Resources, Special Events, Marketing, Public Relations, Alumni Relations, and the Business Office. It also houses the School of Education and several classrooms. Dedicated in 1984, the University Library provides students access to online resources worldwide and offers research assistance to on-campus and online students. The third floor of the library building houses the Law Library, the largest, most complete law library in Hampton Roads, with an extensive collection of federal and state materials. Established in 1986, the Law Library contains significant materials for research in public policy and law, constitutional law, legal history, religion and law, international law, and international human rights, among others. Built in 1986, the Classroom Building houses the School of Psychology & Counseling, the Psychological Services Center, offices for the School of Business & Leadership, the Applied Science and Ethics Laboratory and a PC teaching lab, Academic Advising offices, in addition to numerous classrooms and seminar rooms. Dedicated in the fall of 1994, the four-story Robertson Hall is equipped with audio/video technology and cameras for simultaneous broadcasting. Many of the classrooms are tiered and seminar-sized. The 132,000-square foot building houses the School of Law, the Robertson School of Government, and offices for the College of Arts & Sciences, plus a 376-seat moot court/city council chamber, various student organizations and the offices of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). Opened in the summer of 2002, the 135,000-square-foot Communication and Performing Arts Center houses all the functional areas of the School of Communication & the Arts, along with Media Services and Information Technology. Key elements in the building are a 710-seat proscenium arch theatre, a 195-seat experimental theatre, a TV studio, a film sound stage, nonlinear video editing suites, costume and scene shops, acting and dance labs, two film screening theatres, Regen
