The Ralph and Mary Regula Center for Public Service and Civic Engagement
The Regula Center is home to a variety of community-based opportunities that allow students to prepare for careers in public service or simply get involved in the community. Home to the Dowling Mentor Program, Regula Scholars, Sophomore Service Honorary, and the Continued Learning Program, the Center provides a wide range of programming for our students and the community. Additionally, the Center coordinates monthly Regula Breakfasts, annual community service projects including the MLK Day of Service and the Community-wide Thanksgiving Dinner, and political interest trips for students.
