Mission and Ministry

Ignite Faith. Seek Justice. Live Prophetic Lives.

The Division of Mission and Ministry provides opportunities to integrate faith, education, service and justice through Creighton's Jesuit, Catholic tradition. We are dedicated to serving each student, faculty member and staff person, respecting their individual cultures and faith traditions, as they seek to walk their life path.

Mission and Ministry leaders:

  • Prophetically animate the Jesuit, Catholic mission of Creighton University both institutionally and individually in the intellectual and faith life of the community.
  • Cultivate a dynamic and inclusive community of faith and learning that invites everyone to an ever deepening relationship with God.
  • Invite Creighton and the wider community into a lived experience of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the Ignatian tradition. 
  • Form leaders to live out a "faith that does justice" and build right relationships among individuals, communities, institutions and with the earth.
