Find your place in the world with a top-ranked education.
Creighton is a wonderful place for students, faculty and staff to live, learn and serve. Sure, we know we’re one of the top Midwest universities and offer the best Jesuit education. But don’t take our word for it. See what everyone else is saying about Creighton and our schools and colleges.
One of “America’s Best Colleges”
Creighton University again earned the top spot in U.S. News & World Report magazine’s college rankings for Midwest Regional Universities. This is the 12th year in a row the University has earned the No. 1 ranking in “America’s Best Colleges” edition.
Creighton was also named among 32 universities in the nation in “Academic Programs to Look For” under Undergraduate Research/Creative Projects. This recognizes universities where students working independently or in small teams, mentored by a faculty member, do intensive and self-directed research or creative work that results in an original scholarly paper or other product that can be formally presented on or off campus.
One of the “Best Colleges of 2014”
Princeton Review again listed Creighton University as one of the nation’s top 378 colleges and universities in its 2014 edition of the annual college guide. The University also made the top 20 list in two categories relating to quality of life activities.
A College of Distinction
High school guidance counselors are some of our biggest fans. Many recommend us for our student engagement, quality of teaching, vibrancy of the college community and success of graduates. That support—and other research—earned us a dedicated profile on Colleges of Distinction.
The Best Master’s University
Creighton University is ranked #1 in the Best Master’s Universities category in the 2014 Washington Monthly College Rankings.
Washington Monthly’s college rankings measure institutions based on three criteria: civic engagement, research and social mobility. Washington Monthly gives high marks to institutions that contribute to society, enroll low-income students, help them graduate and are affordable to attend.
Three Creighton students were selected as 2014 Goldwater Scholars in recognition of their academic achievements in the natural sciences. The awards place Creighton in an elite group of 25 private institutions across the country that in the past five years have produced seven or more Goldwater Scholars. Plus, Creighton is the No. 1 producer among Catholic universities during the same time period.
President’s Award for Community Service
Creighton University was named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for the sixth year in 2013. This is the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, student-service learning and civic engagement, as well as meaningful community outcomes.
Named Fair Trade University
We’re proud to be the first Jesuit university to achieve Fair Trade status as part of Fair Trade Colleges & Universities, a national initiative to recognize institutions’ efforts to support fair trade through five criteria.
