Submit a nomination online

About the awards: Creighton University annually confers these awards during the President's Convocation on members of the faculty and administration deemed outstanding for contributions in research, writing, special service, or some other field that brings credit to the University. Length of service is a measure in the selection, but it should not be the determining factor. Nominations are accepted beginning November 9 and due November 30.

Additional letters of support are encouraged. This information can be sent to the Public Honors and Events Committee Chairperson by email to publichonors@creighton.edu by November 30.
