Student Life

Christopher Taucar
Regis College is an incredible academic and faith filled community that fosters meaningful vocations. Through the constant direction of the professors at Regis I have been able to discover my love for theological bioethics. The theological education that I’m currently receiving is preparing me for a vocation in clinical ethics in a Canadian healthcare context.
