Manresa Medal

Manresa Medal

About the award: The Manresa Medal is symbolic of Creighton University's Jesuit heritage. In 1522, Basque nobleman Ignatius of Loyola spent nearly a year in solitude and prayer in the Spanish village of Manresa, exploring the meaning of his own life. Out of this experience came the inspiration for the founding of the Society of Jesus -- the Jesuits. Creighton's Manresa Medal is presented to those individuals who, like Ignatius, demonstrate inspirational leadership while overcoming obstacles to enduring achievement.
