Pregnancy and Parenting

Pregnant and Parenting Students

Creighton University is committed to providing an accessible and inclusive environment for pregnant and parenting students.

Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 protects pregnant and parenting students from harassment or discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, miscarriage, termination of pregnancy or recovery from any of these conditions.

Pregnant and parenting students have the right to request assistance through the Office of Title IX and Civil Rights Compliance.  To request assistance, please fill out the Pregnant and Parenting Student Assistance Request Form.

Pregnant and Parenting Employees

Employees are not required to disclose their pregnancy or parenting status but are encouraged to speak with their supervisors or Human Resources regarding available support and benefits through the University.

Additional Resources

In certain situations, students may require reasonable accommodations through Student Accessibility Services in addition to Title IX adjustments.  Please visit Student Accessibility Services or contact for additional information on the accommodations process.
