Phoenix Campus Receives Honor for Design Excellence

The new Creighton University Health Sciences – Phoenix Campus has been recognized for education design excellence by a jury of the American Institute of Architects.

The project was recognized for “Outstanding Design” in the Work in Progress category and is featured in the November/December 2020 edition of the American School & University® 2020 Architectural Portfolio magazine.

The Committee on Architecture for Education selected the project among submissions from architectural firms, schools and universities across the country. Projects were chosen based on clarity of concept, innovation and creativity in response to the specifics of programs, users, community and site as well as other factors.

The annual competition honoring education design excellence spotlights projects representing today’s most effective learning environments.

The first classes at the $100 million, 180,000-square-foot building will begin in August. The campus will have a full, four-year medical school and nursing, pharmacy, occupational therapy, physical therapy and physician assistant programs. More than 900 students will eventually be enrolled in those programs.
