Creighton Bluejays basketball team

Athletics

Fourteen NCAA Division I teams. Hundreds of student-athletes. Tens of thousands of fans. And countless ways for you to keep us competitive.

The BIG EAST

Our move to the BIG EAST Conference in 2013 brought an unprecedented level of national attention — to Creighton and Omaha.

It also created countless opportunities for our nearly 300 student-athletes, who have access to some of the best coaches, faculty and facilities in the nation.

We know it takes more than great skills to compete. It requires endurance. And our endurance is fueled by you, with your support of capital projects, travel costs, staffing and, of course, scholarships.

Athletic scholarships are a massive part of our success. They not only solidify our commitment to our student-athletes; they give them what they need to perform at their best — on the playing field and in the classroom.

Keeping us competitive 

Four programs have competed in the NCAA Tournament, continuing the University’s 30-year streak with at least one NCAA Tournament team.

With your continued support, Creighton can continue to recruit, develop and graduate leaders for life. We can build the next generation of champions, all the while keeping our competitive edge against our BIG EAST rivals.

BLUEJAYS PERSEVERE

Creighton Athletics has launched a fundraising drive to help make up for the canceled games and lost budgeted revenue in the wake of the pandemic.

Help us meet this funding gap so Creighton Athletics can sustain its level of success and remain a competitive Division 1 athletic department.

The Jesuit Way

“I’m so grateful that I went to Creighton for so many reasons. I got a great education, and I have great relationships and great memories from being there. One of the values that Creighton instilled in me is that we’re supposed to be leaders in culture. We’re supposed to be people at the front, standing for and with others. That’s what the Jesuits show us to do. That’s the Jesuit way — to find the broken, to find the marginalized voices. And you stand with them, and you support them. That’s what we’re called to do in life.”

— Kyle Korver, BA’03

I have coaches and faculty who don’t just care about me as a student. They care about me as a person. They take the time to understand what I want to do with my life, and they are helping me get there.
