Institutional Accreditation and Specialized Accreditation
Institutional accreditation speaks to the quality and integrity of education at the university level. Specialized program accreditation processes sets standards for professional or other specialized academic programs (e.g., nursing, business, medicine, law) and evaluates the ability of the individual program to meet these standards.
A number of non-academic programs (e.g., human research protection, student counseling services, research and compliance) are also eligible for accreditation. Creighton University's commitment to quality and integrity in individual academic and non-academic programs is evidenced in the number of Creighton's academic and non-academic programs that have successfully achieved specialized accreditation.
