Awards

    The IGGY Award, affectionately named after the Jesuit founder St. Ignatius of Loyola, is an annual student recognition initiative led by the Office of Student Retention at Creighton University. The award goes to those who have been instrumental in helping make the student’s Creighton 2020-2021 fall semester experience a caring and supportive one. At the conclusion of the fall semester, students were invited to nominate faculty, staff and student leaders as their IGGY.
