Boards of Regents

In 2004, to bolster fundraising and relations between Thomas Aquinas College and the local community, the College established its original Board of Regents for the greater Los Angeles Area. Building on the success of the original board, in 2012 the College established a second Board of Regents to serve Northern California. Both boards consist of dynamic, local leaders committed to the College’s mission of Catholic liberal education. The boards’ members serve as goodwill ambassadors, helping to introduce and promote the College to new friends throughout their regions.

“The diverse and in-depth education I received at Thomas Aquinas College was extremely valuable, first and foremost, for my soul; but it also proved to be more beneficial for my vocation as a physician than all the ‘hard sciences’ combined, perfectly blending the practical with the philosophical, and allowing me to see Christ in all whom I treat.”
