About the Selection Process

As host of the prize ceremony, Creighton was responsible for sending delegations out to observe the operations of the three finalist organizations, an experience involving two students or recent alumni and a faculty member dispatched to each site. The delegations were selected through a nomination process and a series of interviews conducted by Opus Prize Foundation members and Creighton faculty, staff and administration.

Taking notes, asking questions and doing the probative work, the Creighton delegations performed their due diligence in a manner befitting Jesuit education. They saw the hungry fed, the homeless sheltered. The abused and marginalized were given comfort and dignity. The lost found ways home. The Creighton groups’ discernment was deep and their hearts pulsed ardently to see social justice being done.
