Creighton Global Initiative
In the era of accelerated globalization, the CGI projects are only one part of how Creighton University contributes to the Society of Jesus' global commitment that emphasizes the promotion of justice and the universal good as part of the service of faith. Thus, we seek to explore new ways to accompany the poor and excluded, promote education, and support a shift from what Pope Francis called "a globalization of indifference" to a globalization of siblinghood. Thus, Creighton University has embraced the distinctive Jesuit focus on global learning that takes place not only "in" the world, but also "for" it, deepening our awareness of humanity as a single species sharing the same history and the same planet.
The Creighton Global Initiative
CGI projects are intended to help learners imagine different futures and the roles they can play in creating a just and sustainable world. It is time now to move from optional opportunities to programs that weave global learning more tightly into our institutional fabric. How might we integrate global learning more formally into our curricula for major and minor studies? How might we assess the value of global learning? How might we contribute to the body of evidence that helps solve intractable global problems? How might we bring more of the world to Creighton, and take Creighton farther into the world?
