Teaching for Tomorrow Award

 This award serves as a way for students to publicly acknowledge faculty members who have positively impacted their lives by going above and beyond the call of duty to serve Creighton students. These faculty members have displayed exceptional dedication to their students, both in and out of the classroom, and exemplify the Jesuit tradition of Cura Personalis - care of the personalis.

Fr. Lukaszewicz, S.J. Staff or Administrator Award

This award serves as a way for students to recognize and publicly acknowledge staff and administrators who have positively impacted their lives by going above and beyond the call of duty to serve Creighton students. Students are especially interested in recognizing staff and administrators who exemplify the Jesuit tradition of Cura Personalis - care of the person.

Fr. Tom Schloemer S.J. Outstanding Student Leader Award

This award is presented annually to recognize students who have displayed exceptional leadership abilities, integrity, initiative, and service. This award also recoginizes students who are "behind-the-scenes" leaders, contributing their time and talents unselfishly in many different settings, without the desire for recognition. We typically honor one student from each academic class.

Founders Footsteps Award 

This award seeks to honor an exemplary student who is devoted to philanthropic efforts, in particular, raising funds or donations for a charitable purpose. Creighton's founders, Edward C. and Mary Lucretia Creighton and John A. and Sarah Emily Wareham Creighton, were philanthropists. This award pays tribute to their legacy by recognizing a student who impacts our community in a positive way through her/his philanthropic efforts. This award is new to the CSU Founders Week Award reception and is co-presented by CSU and the Student Philanthropy Committee.
