Graduate School Leadership Fellows

Support our students as they pursue lives committed to Jesuit values.

Forming future leaders

At Creighton, we strive to support all students seeking guidance to personal and professional growth.  

As Creighton President the Rev. Daniel S. Hendrickson, SJ, PhD, says, “We give our students the focus they need and want in their careers, but we also provide tools for living and working thoughtfully, ethically and eloquently.”  

One impactful way the University does so is the Graduate School Alumni Advisory Board Leadership Fellows Program — which provides mentorship and coaching to help students strengthen their leadership skills and fully embrace the Jesuit charisms and Ignatian values essential to a Creighton education. 

The nine-month program, started in 2018, includes full-day campus retreats and sessions with an internationally certified leadership coach. Focusing on problem-solving, mindfulness and interdisciplinary learning, this program makes a massive impact for our students. 

Thank you for supporting this wonderful program!

Supporting the Graduate School

Over the past decade, Creighton’s number of graduate students has more than tripled, thanks to our expansion of courses and programs — now numbering more than 45 — and the tremendous faculty driving our interdisciplinary curriculum.  

Scholarships have also played a huge role in attracting excellent students to Creighton. Most of our students receive financial aid or scholarships. Last year alone, Creighton awarded nearly 1,900 donor-funded scholarships to students across all schools and colleges. 

Thanks to support from donors like you, students from across the world come to the Graduate School for our accelerated programs, certificates, dual degrees, master’s degrees and doctoral degrees in an array of disciplines.
