Reginaldo Howard Memorial Scholars
What Makes a Reggie Scholar?

A Reginaldo Howard Memorial scholar (a “Reggie”) is a dynamic individual with wide academic and extracurricular interests. All Reggies recognize the importance of high scholastic achievement and prioritize this aspect of university life. This commitment to academic excellence is not confined to the classroom. Scholars seek to infuse basic and advanced academic knowledge into their understanding of the everyday lives and experiences of all people, local and global, within a Reggie’s reach or influence.

The Reggie Program

Reggies are extraordinary individuals who exhibit a commitment to academic achievement, leadership, and community service and social justice.


Commitments to community service and to the principles of justice also unify the Reggie family. Undaunted by the most pressing and important issues of our day, Reggies actively attempt to make a difference for the greater good.
