Mission: Creighton is a Catholic and Jesuit comprehensive university committed to excellence in its selected undergraduate, graduate and professional programs. As Catholic, Creighton is dedicated to the pursuit of truth in all its forms and is guided by the living tradition of the Catholic Church. As Jesuit, Creighton participates in the tradition of the Society of Jesus, which provides an integrating vision of the world that arises out of a knowledge and love of Jesus Christ. As comprehensive, Creighton’s education embraces several colleges and professional schools and is directed to the intellectual, social, spiritual, physical and recreational aspects of students’ lives and to the promotion of justice. Creighton exists for students and learning. Members of the Creighton community are challenged to reflect on transcendent values, including their relationship with God, in an atmosphere of freedom of inquiry, belief and religious worship. Service to others, the importance of family life, the inalienable worth of each individual and appreciation of ethnic and cultural diversity are core values of Creighton. Creighton faculty members conduct research to enhance teaching, to contribute to the betterment of society, and to discover new knowledge. Faculty and staff stimulate critical and creative thinking and provide ethical perspectives for dealing with an increasingly complex world.

Vision: A dynamic vision guides our path. It focuses on deepening our programs in the humanities; expanding Creighton’s academic reach, both with health care partners in Omaha and Phoenix and with professional and corporate partners locally, nationally, and globally; advancing innovative initiatives in interprofessional education and collaborative health care; cultivating a dynamic global perspective; rooted in faith, passionately pursuing our Jesuit, Catholic mission, with a special concern for diversity and inclusion; creating a more just, reconciled, and sustainable world; and continuing to strengthen our research and scholarship. We are inspired and motivated in this pursuit by our outstanding students. They are ambitious, academically talented, diverse, and service-oriented—striving always to make their mark on the world.
