for the Liberal Arts and Professions
What is the Kingfisher Institute?
The Kingfisher Institute is founded on a bold vision for the future of higher education, and Jesuit and Catholic higher education, in particular. We believe that liberal arts and professional education complement and reinforce one another, enabling integrated learning and understanding. Our global society needs Creighton graduates, formed in this mindset, who can address complex challenges with human-centered responses.
Our Mission: Transcendent Perspectives for Transcendent Problems
Our Vision: Humanities for the 21st Century: Uniting Head, Heart and Hands
It was such a blessing to connect with Kingfisher so early in my medical school years. The relationships and opportunities Kingfisher gave me helped to forge important scholarly connections between the humanities and medicine that I’m certain will continue to strengthen throughout my career in academic surgery.
