Creighton Plans to Reopen for Fall
Creighton University plans to reopen its Omaha and Phoenix campuses and return to in-person courses for the fall semester. The University looks to begin the semester early, forgo fall break, and complete most in-person, on-campus learning for the fall 2020 semester by Nov. 25, the day before Thanksgiving. View the fall campus reopening information.
Fall Academic Calendars
Updated fall academic calendars for undergraduate, graduate and professional programs are posted on the Office of the Registrar website.
Phased Return to Campus
Creighton’s campus is closed to all nonapproved students, faculty, staff and visitors. A phased approach is being developed to gradually and safely bring more faculty and staff back to campus for positions critical to academic mission. Individuals and groups seeking to return to campus must complete an online form, and be granted approval from Creighton’s Critical Incident Response Team. Learn more about how to access and complete the form.
The Role of Public Health During the Pandemic
“In some ways, the core principles and functions of public health have not changed at all. What has changed is that more community members are aware of all of the ways that public health touches our lives.”
