An overwhelming majority of scientists (97%) have concluded that anthropogenic forcing is causing climate change that will lead to irreversible damage to our common home. Caring for our common home is essential to Creighton's Catholic, Jesuit mission. The Sustainable Creighton Initiative (SCI) is Creighton's comprehensive strategy and commitment to caring for our common home. The SCI will consist of three phases:

Phase I - Benchmarking

November 2019 - December 2020

Phase II - Planning

January 2021 - April 2022

Phase III - Implementation, Monitoring, & Responding

April 2022 and beyond
