The Office of Multicultural Affairs at Creighton University first started at Creighton University in the late 1960s during the aftermath of the Civil Rights Movement. Locally here in Omaha and at Creighton--many Creighton staff, students, and faculty advocated for civil rights and promoted equality and justice for all in the local Omaha community. Perhaps no one more important to this fight in Creighton's history was Fr. John P. Markoe, S.J.
And since our history is important to note as we move forward, it is important to document the start of the Office of Multicultural Affairs at Creighton University.
