Board of Trustees

The Creighton University Board of Trustees is charged with ensuring that Creighton fulfills the three primary responsibilities of its mission: teaching, research and community service. The University’s bylaws stipulate that at least seven members of the Board are to be members of the Society of Jesus. One of the Board’s primary duties is electing the president of Creighton. Ex officio voting members of the 39-member Board include the University president and the president of the National Alumni Board.
