March 24, 2020 Blessings from the Jesuit Gardens

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

On the north lawn of our picturesque Jesuit Gardens stands a statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a reminder of the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918 and a source of hope for us today.

Please know that, in my own heart, I hold our extended Creighton community especially close during these trying days, as I share this video.

March 19, 2020 Teaching and Learning Center

Dear Creighton Community,

I am grateful for the work of the Teaching and Learning Center as we transition to full-scale online learning beginning Monday, March 23. In this video, I introduce you to some of the center’s experts who are assisting our faculty in this transition to online instruction.

As a reminder, on or before April 6, I will be in touch with you about the status of the University and whether Creighton will be able to return to in-person classroom instruction, or if we are staying online for the rest of the semester.

Until then, please watch this video, and let us stay safe and stay connected.
