Dear Creighton University Student,
Greetings and welcome to the 2014 – 2015 academic year. The purpose of the Creighton University Student Handbook is to assist you in becoming an informed and involved member of our community. As a Jesuit, Catholic University, Creighton promotes an academic learning environment that encourages you to engage in your community and to act with care and concern for each other.
This handbook contains information that will assist you in understanding your student rights and responsibilities as a member of our academic learning community. It is also a useful resource with information about a variety of University departments and programs, student involvement opportunities, campus safety, and University policies.
An important resource, the Student Handbook encourages you to engage in the Creighton community “with compassion, confidence and character.” As you commit to learning in the classroom and to participating in the many co-curricular opportunities that Creighton offers, we encourage you to create meaningful relationships and to fully commit to being a part
of our inclusive community. In return, you will find support and guidance. Seek us out if you need us.
We are here for you and are committed to your success.
Dr. Tanya Winegard
Vice Provost for Student Life
