Mission

At Creighton, We're dedicated to our mission.

A Catholic and Jesuit comprehensive university, Creighton is committed to excellence in our undergraduate, graduate and professional programs.

As Catholic, we are dedicated to the pursuit of truth in all its forms and guided by the living tradition of the Catholic Church.

As Jesuit, we participate in the tradition of the Society of Jesus, which provides an integrating vision of the world from a knowledge and love of Jesus Christ.

As comprehensive, our education includes several colleges and professional schools. Creighton is dedicated to the intellectual, social, spiritual, physical and recreational aspects of our students’ lives and to the promotion of justice.

We exist for students and learning. We challenge our community to reflect on transcendent values—including their relationship with God—in an atmosphere of freedom of inquiry and belief.

Our core values include service, family life, the inalienable worth of each individual and appreciation of diversity.

Our faculty members conduct research to enhance teaching, to contribute to the betterment of society and to discover new knowledge. Faculty and staff stimulate critical and creative thinking and provide ethical perspectives for dealing with an increasingly complex world.
