 Theresa Wood Lavine Division of Professional Studies Dedication

Regis Names Division of Professional Studies in Honor of Benefactor Theresa “Terry” Audette Wood Lavine ‘53

Regis College has named the university’s new Division of Professional Studies after a dedicated alumna and lifelong Regis supporter Theresa “Terry” Audette Wood Lavine ‘53. The Theresa Wood Lavine Division of Professional Studies launched with ten microcredentialing programs that directly address workforce and labor shortages in the health care sector. Additional programs in software development, data science, and cybersecurity were launched last month.

Wood Lavine's lifetime giving to Regis totaled $1.7 million, including a realized bequest intention of $1.5 million following her passing in 2021. She was Regis’ first Fulbright Scholar, traveling to Germany to participate in the international exchange program. In the Fall 2014 issue of Regis Today, Wood Lavine said “the Fulbright and Regis opened my eyes to the world”—and she credited her experience abroad with helping to launch a successful, 30-year career as a global consultant. 

“Terry was an extraordinary woman, a force to be reckoned with, and she truly loved her alma mater,” said Regis President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN. “Her generosity to Regis will make an incredible difference for decades to come and I am honored that her name and legacy will forever be a part of Regis College. As the namesake of our new Division of Professional Studies, Terry’s name will inspire those seeking to enhance their career opportunities or complete their undergraduate degree programs.”

Wood Lavine’s cousin, Christopher Moore, spoke on behalf of several family members after the division was officially dedicated in her name on March 4, 2023. (pictured left)  

“Terry had a quiet, intellectual confidence about herself, in a very humble way, and it really allowed her to accomplish so many things in her life,” said Moore. “We are very proud of Terry's accomplishments, we’re very proud of her generosity, and we are pleased that this division has been associated with her and that her legacy will live on and that she will be able to give back for generations. We look forward to hearing wonderful things from Regis and its graduates.”
