Sustainable Creighton

At Creighton, we form and educate agents of change by teaching behaviors that reflect critical thought and responsible action on moral and ethical issues. Environmental degradation and issues of sustainability impact all lives, especially those living on the margins of society.

Our mission as a Jesuit, Catholic university requires us to care for our neighbors and for our common home. Guided by Ignatian spirituality and Laudato Si', we continue on our path to conversion,  striving toward more ecologically sustainable conditions.

As individuals and collectively as a university, sustainability means being responsible stewards of our environmental, social and economic resources. We consider our impact on the environment, promote justice, and are transparent in all that we do. Our perspective is global: we think holistically about issues of environmental concern and we work toward sustainable solutions on campus, in Omaha, throughout our region and across the world.

Explore our many ongoing efforts that are focused on sustainability and take advantage of opportunities to join us. Creativity and collaboration make sustainability a part of everyday life, our life, here at Creighton.
