Message from the Provost

Creighton faculty and investigative teams are engaged in research to discover new knowledge. Creighton's faculty and students are actively involved in research across a remarkable breadth of human endeavor and inquiry including archaeology, digital humanities, data science, nuclear and particle physics, HIV, osteoporosis, epilepsy, cardiovascular disease and hereditary cancer. This partial list of areas of research excellence at Creighton University illustrates the wide spectrum of research training opportunities provided to our students.

Our faculty and staff work closely with undergraduate and graduate students and postgraduate trainees, providing them with cutting edge experiences and thoughtful mentoring to develop their intellectual capabilities and creativity. Creighton students learn both the excitement and the rigors of new discovery. The high caliber and stellar accomplishments of our research teams are expanding the frontiers of knowledge and scholarship in the Jesuit tradition toward the betterment of society.
