Mission, Academics and Programs

A Creighton education is more than a degree; it’s a chance to achieve a singular perspective, to find collective purpose and meaning, to learn how to live a life in the service of others.

Leading the way

Our Jesuit approach to teaching, research and programs is the cornerstone of a Creighton education. Through access to innovative mentors and opportunities, our students attain the skills, perspective and passion they need to go forth and set the world on fire.  

A student serves food at a community center

Our nine schools and colleges offer a wide variety of programs and experiences for students pursuing careers in the arts, sciences, law, business and health sciences fields. And our reputation for top-tier research is recognized across all areas of campus. Creighton offers our students countless opportunities to grow — through service-learning, studying abroad and other immersive experiences.  

This is the heart of our mission: to form every student as a "whole person."  

Every gift made to mission, academics and programs serves this aim. Your support allows us to continue creating well-rounded women and men, ready to lead the way in pursuit of a better world.
