Faculty and Staff Giving

Making sure this transformative education endures.

Through extraordinary teaching, mentorship and support, our faculty and staff continually show their commitment to our mission.

The campus community works hard to ensure that the Creighton experience is more than just an idea, that it’s a tangible everyday reality for thousands of students.

Faculty and staff contribute to this transformative education in countless ways — many of them philanthropic. They support scholarships, academic programs and initiatives, campus developments and more.

Through the Giving Our Best campaign (launched in fall of 2021), we call on all our amazing faculty and staff to support the mission they serve. 

Here's how faculty and staff can continue to help sustain Creighton's excellence!
