Imagine Our Magis: Mission Week 2019
For the inaugural University Mission Week, we asked Creighton community members to reflect on the University’s mission statement. Listen to how they have made meaning of the mission, how they have witnessed it alive and how they live it themselves.
Reflecting on the first two stanzas of Creighton mission statement, Leah Georges, PhD, explains how the Creighton mission is alive and found in classrooms to parking lots.

Creighton exists for students and for learning. Senior Angie Ngo says we are called to use our passion to enact the mission in our communities.
Creighton exists for students and learning. Members of the Creighton community are challenged to reflect on transcendent values, including their relationship with God, in an atmosphere of freedom of inquiry, belief and religious worship. Service to others, the importance of family life, the inalienable worth of each individual and appreciation of ethnic and cultural diversity are core values of Creighton.
Called to create learning environments to better society, LaShaune Johnson, PhD, reflects as a researcher how her engagement with the community fosters rich learning experiences for her students.
Creighton faculty members conduct research to enhance teaching, to contribute to the betterment of society, and to discover new knowledge. Faculty and staff stimulate critical and creative thinking and provide ethical perspectives for dealing with an increasingly complex world.
