On Sept. 2, 1878, five Jesuits, two lay teachers and 120 students began classes at Creighton College, named for one of Omaha’s pioneering families.
Brothers Edward and John Creighton, hard working entrepreneurs who would become leading figures in the community, settled in Omaha in the mid-1850s. Sisters Mary Lucretia and Sarah Emily, who married the Creighton brothers, created a culture of faith and generosity throughout the area. Mary Lucretia provided in her will to establish Creighton College in Edward’s memory. John and Sarah Emily’s philanthropy enlarged it to a five-school university.
Today, Creighton University consists of nine schools and colleges with more than 8,500 undergraduate, graduate and professional students and more than 2,250 employees. Creighton is one of 27 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States.
