CU in the Community

We Help strengthen the community we call home.



You’ll take away a lot from your Creighton experience, like a top-tier Jesuit education. But, ultimately, you’ll give back even more. Community engagement is a big part of life on campus. It’s partly because of our Jesuit tradition and the character of our students. But, mostly, it’s just what we do. 

As a Jesuit college, Creighton works in and around our region and across the globe to create better communities and a better world.

We’re having a serious impact on our local economy—ensuring the vitality of Omaha, the state of Nebraska and the Midwest. And we’re carrying the spirit of service even further.  Our students, faculty, staff and alumni volunteer their time to work with our community partners on the initiatives that serve those in need and help create a more just world.
