Famous Regent University Alumni

Regent University Motto: Christian Leadership to Change the World

Monica M. Goodling (born August 6, 1973) is a United States lawyer and political appointee in the administration of President George W. Bush. She was the Director of Public Affairs for the United States Department of Justice, serving under Attorneys General John Ashcroft and Alberto Gonzales.

Monica Goodling's reign as the first ever sitting Justice Department official to plead the Fifth is over, CNN just reported. She'll resign tomorrow.

How Pat Robertson's Law School is Changing America (

Goodling is only one of 150 graduates of Regent University currently serving in this administration, as Regent's Web site proclaims proudly, a huge number for a 29-year-old school. Regent estimates that "approximately one out of every six Regent alumni is employed in some form of government work." And that's precisely what its founder desired. The school's motto is "Christian Leadership To Change the World," and the world seems to be changing apace. Former Attorney General John Ashcroft teaches at Regent, and graduates have achieved senior positions in the Bush administration. The express goal is not only to tear down the wall between church and state in America (a "lie of the left," according to Robertson) but also to enmesh the two.

Tom Monahan, founder of Dominos Pizza and Ave Maria Law School in Ann Arbor, has a similar objective.
