Gonzaga University

As Gonzaga begins a yearlong centennial celebration of the School of Business Administration, a gift of $2 million has established the Jud Regis Chair of Accounting. Of that amount, $1.75 million endows the Jud Regis Chair while $200,000 is designated for the accounting program itself and $50,000 for the Fund for Gonzaga in support of student scholarships. Donors Dan and Cecelia Regis, of Bellevue, named the endowed position to honor Dan's father, Jud, whom they credit with instilling the values of faith, family and freedom in Dan and his siblings. Jud Regis grew up in Spokane where Dan was born. During his career, Dan Regis oversaw the Northwest offices of the accounting firm Price Waterhouse (now PricewaterhouseCoopers) as managing partner before leaving in 1996 for the venture capital arena. Accounting has long been a strength of Gonzaga's business school. The program's 82.4% CPA pass rate is 10th in the nation and first on the West Coast for schools with at least 60 candidates taking the exam. The undergraduate accounting program is ranked 31st in U.S. News & World Report's 2022 business school rankings. Gonzaga's School of Business Administration was founded in 1921.
