What is Sustainability?

At Creighton University, we recognize sustainability as a strategy to fulfill our moral responsibility to care for creation. We follow the United Nation's definition of meeting the needs and aspirations of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to do the same (Our Common Future1987). Guided by our Jesuit, Catholic values and traditions, we pursue sustainability with a multi-dimensional approach of environmental, social, and economic perspectives.

"Living our vocation to be protectors of God's handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience." - Pope Francis, Laudato Si', no. 217
