At Creighton, we serve each student, professor, staff member and alumnus as a whole person, respecting their individual cultures and faiths as they walk their life’s path.
Our mission is best illustrated in who our students become: agents of change with a commitment to faith and community that lasts long past commencement.
The gift we give our students is for them to be able to identify who they are at their core, to identify what their gifts are, to identify what brings them passion and joy and fire, and to ask the question, Where does the world need all that?
— Kyle Lierk, BSBA’99, director of Campus Ministry
