As the need for jobs in the computer and information technology field quickly expands, Regis students will be ready to take on complex technological challenges while becoming leaders in their field. These programs combine global engagement, entrepreneurial techniques, and experiential learning to create a portfolio of transferable skills that set Regis graduates apart. Your gift to the CCIS Excellence Fund supports an innovative computer and information sciences education that promotes industry engagement, skill development, and common good advancement.
The CCIS Scholarship Fund was established in 2014 to provide financial assistance to graduate students in a CCIS degree program. Preference is given to students with a demonstrated commitment to community service and volunteer work in the area of computing for the common good.
Working with industry leaders, governmental agencies and cutting edge technology, we aspire to create a world where computing technology and information systems are used for the common good and the betterment of society. Through your generous financial support, CCIS and the Center for Common Good Computing at Regis University will make this happen.

Guided by our Jesuit values, we challenge our graduates to become leaders through academic excellence, experiential learning, scholarship, research, and the applications of technology to improve the human condition and embrace innovation. Partnering with global businesses and local community members, our students solve the gritty problems that require reflection and courageous action. - CCIS Mission Statement
Through the generous support of sponsors and donors like you, the Collegiate Education Programs Fund can support initiatives like: the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (RMCCDC).
Don Archer, Associate Dean for CCIS, was the architect behind what is today regarded as among Regis University's top strengths: its cybersecurity program. Tapping real-world knowledge, the program draws strength from the expertise of its faculty and success of its alumni. In honor of the contributions made in cybersecurity by Don Archer, the position of Endowed Chair will head the Common Good Computing Center and further its work.
Imagine a world where young people pursue careers in computer and information sciences because they can see a future where they have the skills to address problems that matter in their world. These young people may be from under-served populations or from rural communities who gained exposure to computer and information sciences because of your donation. Their contributions to improving the world are limitless. - Dr. Shari Plantz-Masters, Academic Dean, CCIS
Through your generous financial support, CCIS and the Center for Common Good Computing at Regis University will enable young people a chance to explore computer and information sciences in a fun, safe, and engaging environment. The K-12 Educational Fund support initiatives like: CyberTech Girls; Colorado First Tech Challenge; and Porter-Billups Leadership Academy. These initiatives are offered to young people at no cost because of your support.
The goal of CyberTech Girls is to help develop pathways to cybersecurity careers that will be fulfilling and lucrative for women to balance the gender ratio in technology fields. With the gender ratio of less than 15% female in technology and security roles, it is imperative female students are encouraged to explore experiences related to cybersecurity in a fun, no-pressure environment. These types of experiences can help guide and develop future interests in cybersecurity. CyberTech Girls events are focused on sharing technology training with middle school and high school girls who want to learn more about cybersecurity topics. Students will experience a variety of hands-on activities and engage with industry professionals, college students, and professors. Sponsors, professionals, mentors, and volunteers are encouraged to be a part of CyberTech Girls.
Colorado FIRST Tech Challenge:
Colorado FIRST Tech Challenge will impact over 15,000 young people across the western region of the United States.
Since 2009, FIRST programs in Colorado have offered mentor based after-school programs and robotics tournaments for youth ages 13-18 to ignite interest in STEM and to foster well-rounded life capabilities such as self-confidence, teamwork, and leadership, so that youth have the skills necessary for the 21st century.
Porter-Billups Leadership Academy:
Porter-Billups Leadership Academy is dedicated to helping young students accept leadership roles and strive to make a positive impact in a changing society.
Since 2018, CCIS has been introducing these students from inner city schools to the field of cybersecurity to expand their awareness of STEM related professions.
