Creighton University spotlights extraordinary alumni who contribute to the greater good. These outstanding graduates live the ideals of a Jesuit, Catholic education. We celebrate their stories and recognize their contributions to Creighton and their communities. We honor them with a variety of alumni awards—from the Alumni Merit Award, recognizing outstanding alumni in each of our schools and colleges, to the Alumni Achievement Citation, which is Creighton’s highest award.
