A Commitment to Equal Employment

Creighton University is committed to providing equal employment opportunity based on qualifications and merit without unlawful regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation or veteran status.

It is Creighton's policy that recruitment, hiring, promotions, demotions, transfers, training, benefits, separations and other personnel decisions are made in full compliance with Equal Opportunity laws and regulations.

As president of the University, I fully support these policies.

I am also committed to the implementation of a strong Affirmative Action Program designed to correct the under-utilization of individuals belonging to groups that historically have suffered discrimination.

Affirmative Action procedures will be followed where there is under-utilization for specific job categories. When the University reaches the affirmative action goals established for a specific job category, equal employment opportunity hiring, promotion and monitoring procedures will be followed.

Creighton University is a Catholic and Jesuit institution and reserves the right to maintain its heritage and identity as a religious institution of higher education.  As a Catholic and Jesuit institution, the University will promote the hiring and promotion of Jesuits. 

The Creighton University Diversity and Inclusion policy sets forth the philosophy related to institutional diversity, justice and human dignity that is central to Creighton's mission.  The statement can be found at: www.creighton.edu/generalcounsel/cupolicies
