About

There's no place like Creighton University.



Creighton University, located in Omaha, Nebraska, offers a top-ranked Jesuit education for people who want to contribute something meaningful to the world. It’s where students, faculty and staff thrive in a supportive community committed to Jesuit, Catholic values and traditions. And, it’s where students learn to become leaders through service to others.

Founded in 1878, Creighton is one of 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the U.S. Our more than 8,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students come to Creighton each year to find their place in the world through lives of leadership and service.

Creighton’s schools and college deliver powerful education that connects arts and sciences, law and business with health science programs in dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, occupational and physical therapy, public health and emergency medical services.

As members of the Society of Jesus, the more than 17,000 Jesuits serving around the world continue the Ignatian tradition by advancing education. The Society of Jesus—the world’s largest Catholic religious order of priests and brothers—was founded in the mid-1500s by St. Ignatius of Loyola.
