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
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
Literally translated, magis means “more” in a sense of greater
or better. It denotes a transcendence, or “rising above or beyond
normal expectations.” Individuals who have been transformed
by magis in their lives will put their hands and minds to work in a
constant pursuit of a greater and common good.
Women and men for and with others
Instead of living just for oneself, live for others. This value manifests
as selflessness in action. It describes a thriving culture with many
diverse people working together, sharing, volunteering, reflecting,
pursuing justice and having concern for anyone who is marginalized.
When all are working for and with others, all are equal.
Translated, this means care for the individual person. It means
respecting each person as a child of God along with all of
God’s creation—regardless of creed or background. It challenges
us to dig deeper to understand each person’s gifts, challenges
Unity of heart, mind and soul
We believe in developing not just our students’ professional
skills, but the whole person and integrating all aspects of their
lives into practice. On our campus, heart, mind and soul are never
separate. They work together as a personal triumvirate: all three
are essential to becoming one’s strongest self.
Ad majorem Dei gloriam
Translated: “For the greater glory of God.” It is a central theme of
the Ignatian tradition that Creighton has embraced deeply. This
underlying philosophy is benevolent. Caring. Unshakable. Loving.
Everything we pursue at Creighton is about more than becoming
greater human beings; it is about serving as a dynamic participant
in causes greater than our own—starting with our surrounding
communities and those who are in need.
Finding God in all things
Life has its trials. But it is also an engagement with a divine
experience—a constant and conscious exploration of what’s
inherently good all around us and how we can better ourselves.
This Jesuit value speaks of the importance of embracing life
with open arms.
Forming and educating agents of change
At Creighton, students boldly explore their future potential. They
are asked to envision where they see themselves as future leaders.
Then our education answers the challenge through thousands of
internship opportunities, connections to job networks and untold
service openings. We help transform students’ goals and plans into
actions that make a positive difference worldwide.
The Creighton University community is based on a Jesuit, Catholic
Jesuit tradition and is committed to supporting the intrinsic value of
each human being. This tradition involves striving to create a human
community influenced by the laws of justice and love, complete
with respect and concern for all persons as children of God. The
Creighton University community is dedicated to the promotion of
values consistent with personal and academic excellence.
Choosing to join this community, whether as a student, faculty
or staff, obligates you to act in a manner that is consistent with
these commitments. Joining the Creighton University community
evidences your acceptance of these commitments and agreement
to strive for their achievement. Commitment to living by these
principles means that you will endeavor to:
1. Act with professional, academic and personal integrity.
Consistent with this principle is conduct in accord with
the academic honesty policy of the University, other
University policies that foster a human community of
justice, respect and concern, and the code of ethics of
your foreseen profession. This principle challenges you
to shape a personal code of positive values, to live a
healthy, balanced lifestyle and to discover and embrace
the responsibilities of your freedom, intelligence and
intrinsic worth. Inconsistent with this principle are all
forms of dishonesty, excuse-making, failure to take
responsibility for your behavior, infidelity or disloyalty in
personal relationships and violations of the code of ethics
of your foreseen profession.
2. Respect and promote the dignity of all persons.
Consistent with this principle is growing in understanding
of different cultures and groups, resolving conflicts fairly,
appreciating people’s differences and seeking truths
and values essential to human life and community. This
principle challenges you to refrain from actions that
threaten or discourage the freedom, personal safety and
respect that all individuals deserve. Inconsistent with
this principle are actions that compromise or demean
the intrinsic worth of individuals or groups. All forms of
racism, sexism, pornography, lewd behavior, harassment,
discrimination, intimidation, taunting, insult, physical
harm and discrimination are inconsistent with
3. Respect the policies of the Creighton University
community and the rights of its members both
on and off campus, as well as the just laws of the
civic community and the rights of its members.
Consistent with this principle is the affirmative support
for equal rights and opportunities for all members
of the Creighton University community, realizing
that you are a member of a larger community, with a
responsibility to understand diverse societal issues and
being a responsible participant in the civic and Creighton
community. Inconsistent with this principle are actions
that are illegal and that violate another’s right to move
about freely and securely, to live and learn in a community
where members are secure in their property and person,
to express themselves appropriately and to enjoy privacy.
4. Support the personal, professional, academic
and vocational development of the members
of the Creighton University community.
Consistent with this principle are actions that are
compassionate and considerate of the needs and
well-being of others and that encourage the development
of our moral, spiritual, intellectual, emotional, personal
and vocational abilities. Inconsistent with this principle are
actions that are insensitive, inhospitable, spiteful or which
unjustly or arbitrarily inhibit another’s ability to securely
pursue goals in accord with the development of their
Student Life Life
The Division of Student Life at Creighton exists to help students become
the best possible versions of themselves, promoting learning not just as
a classroom experience, but as a lifelong endeavor. An inclusive campus
culture gives all students the confidence to learn, grow and engage in their
community with compassion, confidence and character.

Creighton Comprehensive Student Record
The Creighton Comprehensive Student Record (CCSR) is an optional but strongly encouraged co-curricular transcript created
to depict a student’s holistic experience at Creighton. While academic transcripts tell a student’s academic story, the CCSR will
provide additional information about a student’s entire experience and skills obtained while at Creighton. Contact
firstname.lastname@example.org or visit studentlife.creighton.edu/ccsr to learn more.
CCSR participants will engage in experiences in the following categories:
Wellbeing: The Jesuit value of cura personalis challenges us to be concerned with the mind, body and
spirit of our students. Through these experiences, students will develop life skills that will foster a sense of
wellbeing, personal integrity, resiliency and adaptability.
Kinship: When we are in kinship with one another, we affirm the gifts of the individual and move from tolerance
to acceptance. Through these experiences, students will develop and promote respectful relationships and an
inclusive environment which celebrates the commonalities and uniquenesses of each person.
Leadership and Service: Leadership within the Ignatian tradition is a lifelong process that is reflective and
focused in serving others. Through these experiences students will develop collaboration skills to achieve a
shared purpose. Students will also demonstrate the value of service that is for and with others.
Reflection and Discernment: When hearts and minds are in unity, the whole person is engaged.
Through these experiences, students will learn to demonstrate awareness of personal and others’ gifts
and reflect upon how their gifts can serve others.
Courageous Learning: Creighton students are not called simply to consume knowledge, but to do so in a
critical manner. Through these experiences, students will integrate knowledge and experiences that will
help them engage the world in a purposeful way.
Wellness is the multidimensional awareness and practice of cura personalis, or “care for the individual person,” to achieve a
healthy and balanced lifestyle. Your goal is to find and pursue your passion, and our goal is to help you achieve the lifestyle
that will allow you to do so. To accomplish this, the Division of Student Life encourages students to participate in activities that
cultivate the following dimensions of wellness:
Spiritual: Expanding a sense of purpose and
meaning in life
Intellectual: Recognizing creative abilities and
finding ways to expand knowledge and skills
Social: Developing a sense of connection,
belonging and a well-developed support system
Physical: Recognizing the need for physical
activity, healthy foods and sleep
Environmental: Good health by occupying
pleasant, stimulating environments
Emotional: Coping effectively with life and creating
Financial: Satisfaction with current and future
Occupational: Personal satisfaction and
enrichment from one’s work.
While food insecurity isn’t always easily noticeable, it’s an issue that impacts a significant number of college students.
According to a study by the University of Wisconsin HOPE Lab, 36 percent of students at four-year institutions identify
as having “low” (reduced quality, variety or desirability of diet) or “very low” (multiple indications of disrupted eating and
reduced food intake) food security.
To combat food insecurity at Creighton, the Creighton Cupboard provides complete meals for undergraduate, graduate and
professional students who identify as food insecure. The pantry is supported by Division of Student Life staff and student
employees. The Cupboard is one of more than 650 on-campus food pantries in the United States, according to the College
and University Food Bank Alliance.
To sign up to receive meals, find additional resources, make a donation or learn how to register a food drive,

Office of Community
Standards and Wellbeing
The Office of Community Standards and Wellbeing (OCSW) exists
to enhance the quality of the student experience outside of the
classroom and to integrate those experiences with their academic
learning. To accomplish this mission, the office has five primary
learning outcomes. Through the work of the OCSW, students will
be able to:
Articulate Creighton’s Code of Conduct as outlined in the
Demonstrate congruence between their actions, their personal values
and Creighton’s Jesuit values and charisms.
Examine how their actions impact their individual success
in and out of the classroom, as well as in their communities.
Think critically about their own choices and the impact those
may have on Creighton and other communities.
Develop skills and strategies to allow them to better model
the Code of Conduct in the future.
The OCSW is responsible for coordinating policies and procedures
concerning student conduct and the conduct process, as outlined
in the Creighton Student Handbook. Students are expected to play
an active and respectful role in community life at Creighton and
adhere to the Student Code of Conduct. Students are encouraged
to make responsible decisions in their lives inside and outside
of the classroom. The Student Code of Conduct applies to all
Creighton students regardless of whether the behavior(s) occurred
on or off campus.
Any student who is documented for an alleged
violation of the Standards of Conduct will
participate in the behavioral misconduct process to
determine an appropriate outcome. This discipline
process is fully outlined in the Creighton University
Student Handbook. Students should refer to the
Creighton University Student Handbook for specific
details regarding the process.
The OCSW believes that students who choose to
violate the Standards of Conduct have an obligation
to reconcile the fact that they also violated their
own integrity and the integrity of the Creighton
community. Any student who is found responsible
for violating the Standards of Conduct will
receive a set of outcomes intended to help them
complete that process of reconciliation. Additional
information regarding outcomes can be found in
the Creighton University Student Handbook.
The OCSW fosters an environment of learning from experience
and moving beyond negative choices. Students are provided with
the resources and education needed to respect the dignity of all
persons, the policies of the Creighton University community and
the rights of its members both on and off campus, in addition to
the just laws of the civic community and the rights of its members.
The conduct process is built on the foundation that the process
should be educational and helpful to the student’s development.
The OCSW aims to support students as they work through the
sometimes uncomfortable process of making choices that better
reflect the personal and communal values articulated by the Jesuit
values central to the mission of the University.
Fraternity and Sorority Life
Community Standards Board
The Community Standards Board provides opportunities for
leadership and service in addition to developing lifelong skills in
facilitating and resolving conflicts, as well as promoting civility
and citizenship within the University community. Membership
is open to all Creighton students in good standing with the
University, via an application process.
The purpose of the board is to conduct hearings on alleged
infractions of University rules and provide appropriate outcomes
in matters involving non-academic matters where it is anticipated
that a student infraction may result in a warning or reprimand.
The hearing is not a formal process such as a civil or criminal trial
but an educational endeavor, which deals with alleged
Discipline is educational, and for that reason, formal rules of

chance to find your place on campus through a breadth
of leadership opportunities. Creighton values a diverse,
well-rounded student body and expects that you’ll
be positively influenced by your fraternity or sorority
experience, but not defined by it. With 44 percent of
Creighton undergraduates involved, fraternities and
sororities are popular outlets for personal growth.
Fraternity and Sorority organizations place a high value on
academics (consistently averaging a higher GPA than the
rest of campus) and demonstrate a strong commitment
to community service. Last year, fraternities and sororities
completed more than 20,000 community service hours
and raised over $ 200,000 for philanthropic causes.

management, test anxiety, exam prep and other fundamental
Academic Strategy Courses, which are credit-bearing courses
(EDGE ® 120 and EDGE ® 130) designed to help students

Students today face the challenge of entering a very
difficult, constantly changing working environment. How
can families help them with their decisions?
Identify skills. What are they good at? What do they excel in?
Explore goals and interests. What would they like to do? What
are their interests? Leisure-time activities and hobbies may
lead to some exciting career possibilities.
Think long-term. What quality experience (internships, parttime
jobs) would enhance a resume and provide valuable
insight and experience?
Choosing the right career can be a daunting process. With
an unlimited array of possibilities, students may have
difficulty deciding the best path. Questions to consider
range from “Has my interest in this area decreased, and
should I change my direction?” to “I like so many areas.
It’s hard to decide.” Change is the only constant. Be
prepared for many questions and be involved in your
student’s college life. Depending on the situation, you may
suggest academic advising, career counseling or personal
counseling for assistance.

Schlegel Center for Service and Justice
The John P. Schlegel, SJ, Center for Service and Justice seeks to spark passion for truth
and justice and nourish courage and lives of commitment. The SCSJ engages students in
community service, reflection and action on behalf of justice and sustainability as an integral
part of their Jesuit, Catholic university education. Visit the SCSJ in Lower Becker Hall, or
contact email@example.com or 402.280.1290.
A majority of incoming students have had some form of community
service experience in high school. The SCSJ helps continue that
commitment to service and build new relationships as students enter
the Creighton and Omaha communities. Partnerships with a number
of sites around the metro area provide students an opportunity to drop
in for one-time or consistent volunteer experiences each week. If your
interests are beyond the sites offered, the SCSJ can work with you to
find the right fit.
Service and Justice Trips
Faculty, staff and students consistently say that going on a Service and
Justice Trip is one thing that everyone should do before graduation.
Why not go right away? Each fall and spring break, hundreds of
students travel across the country to serve and learn on half- and fullweek
Service and Justice Trips. Whether you’re working with people
experiencing homelessness in Cleveland, learning about mountaintop
removal in West Virginia or providing hurricane relief in New Orleans,
you’ll find opportunities for all service passions.
The SCSJ also enhances passions for making the world a better
place by introducing students to others who have similar hopes and
dreams for the world. Students consistently meet with local, state
and national leaders to advocate for and learn about policy reform on
several key justice issues.

Office of Student
Mike and Josie Harper Center, 1100
The Office of Student Employment Office provides
support as you navigate the process of finding on-campus
employment. Part-time student workers play an important
role in helping departments on campus carry out their daily
work. Each year, more than 2,500 Creighton students help
meet their educational expenses by working both through
Federal Work Study and University-funded employment.
Student employees serve in a wide variety of positions from
intramural sports referees to health lab research assistants.
The Office of Student Employment connects students
to employment opportunities on campus primarily
through Handshake. Handshake is Creighton University’s
online career management system that offers many
benefits including a search function for on-campus
student employment, a mobile-friendly interface and a
personalized experience for students and employers to
connect for opportunities. Additionally, some on-campus
jobs are filled by word-of-mouth, so you should also
contact departments of interest directly.
Federal Work-Study (FWS) provides part-time jobs for
students with financial need, allowing them to earn money
to help pay education expenses. Eligibility is based on your

Study Abroad and Find your Place in the World
In keeping with Creighton’s mission to equip students
to live and engage in a globalizing world, the Global
Engagement Office (GEO) offers a variety of study abroad
opportunities for students to expand their skills and
gain new perspectives on their career in a new country,
culture and environment. Programs abroad vary in course
offerings, length and cost. Through the GEO, students
work with a global programs coordinator to select a
program that fits their academic, financial and personal
needs. For more information, send an email to
When do Creighton students study abroad?
Students may study abroad for a full academic year, a
fall semester, a spring semester or a few weeks during
the summer. Choosing the best time to study abroad
will depend upon your major, academic plan and other
activities in which you are involved. Most Creighton
students choose to study abroad during their sophomore
or junior year. The global programs coordinators and your
academic advisor can help you determine the best time for
you to study abroad. Pre-med students should speak with
the EDGE Pre-Health Advisors to determine what term
would be the best time for them to study abroad.
How does financial aid transfer?
The portability of financial aid depends upon the type
of program. Some programs allow portability of both
Creighton and federal financial aid, while other programs
allow portability of only federal financial aid. The global
programs coordinators and the Creighton Financial Aid
Office will assist you in choosing a program that meets
your financial needs.

a nationally recognized program focused on reducing
incidents of power-based personal violence. Green Dot
challenges each participant to take a proactive stance
against violence and provides individuals with a variety
of options to make the community safer, both directly

Emergency phone: 402.280.2911
The Department of Public Safety, which
reports to the Office of the Executive Vice
President, is responsible for campus safety
and security. The department operates 24
hours a day, seven days a week, from its
headquarters facility at 2222 Burt Street.
Public Safety is a private armed security
force, with three shifts of officers who
receive a variety of specialized training
that includes first aid, CPR and the use
The department includes the senior
director, associate director, community
outreach officer, clery compliance
officer, emergency manager and parking
administrator, plus three shift supervisors,
21 patrol officers, three full-time
dispatchers, three part-time dispatchers
and a parking attendant.
Today, more than ever, we must be
prepared for situations that we could
never have anticipated happening
and recognize that immediate
communication is critical to keep
students, faculty and staff well-informed.
Effective emergency response requires
personal preparedness and training.
A key element of Creighton’s
comprehensive crisis plan is a multichannel
communication system called
CreightonAlert. That system allows us to
keep the Creighton community informed
either in the classroom, in the residence
halls and while you are using your
computer or cell phone.
It is important to register for this service
and to update information if any of your
contact information has changed. Simply

Public Safety maintains that the more
effective strategy is to prevent rather
than to solve crimes. To that end, the
department devotes a significant portion
of its resources to crime prevention:
Officers patrol the campus on foot,
on bicycles and in vehicles 24 hours a
day. Always on the alert for potential
problems, officers provide a first line of
defense with an intercept capability and
a visible deterrence.
Over 400 surveillance cameras monitor
and record activity across the campus
and serve as visible deterrents to crime.
In 2017, an upgrade to the Public Safety
dispatch center dramatically increased
the department’s ability to proactively
monitor activity across the campus.
Electronic card access systems are
employed in a number of buildings
on campus. These electronic access
systems afford an extra measure of
security in their flexibility and control.
In 2017, the University also launched an
important initiative to offer faculty, staff
and students with a personal mobile
safety device as an enhancement to
our campus safety environment. This
Bluetooth-enabled device pairs with
a smartphone app to allow any user
on campus to immediately summon
assistance to an exact geographic
location. When activated, the device
places an emergency phone call
to either the campus Public Safety
dispatcher or to the local 911 dispatcher.
It also transmits the user’s exact
geolocation and personal profile to
the campus Public Safety dispatcher.
Activated with three clicks of a button,
this device eliminates the need to carry
a phone in hand, to remove gloves or
to unlock the phone to make a call.

A campus shuttle service provides
students and University employees
with safe and convenient transportation
to most sites on campus up to 20
hours each day. Two shuttle buses
run concurrently to link all corners of
the campus with most destinations
in between. A third shuttle provides
service to commuters parking along the
Burt Street Corridor. A free campus taxi
service (JayRide) operates between
9 p.m. and 2 a.m.
A pedestrian escort service is available
to all campus members upon request.
Public Safety Officers will accompany
pedestrians to their residence
halls, parked cars or other campus
destinations anytime someone is
apprehensive about walking alone.
Blue light emergency phones are
located strategically throughout the
campus, particularly in parking lots.
They enable one to activate a single
emergency button on the phone panel
to be in instant contact with the Public

Parking on Campus
All vehicles parked on property that is owned or leased by
Creighton University must display a current University parking
permit in the lower-right corner of the front windshield.
Displaying a permit allows you to leave a vehicle in a parking
stall, as space is available, but does not guarantee the
availability of a stall. University ID cards and parking permits are
required for all garages.
During normal business hours, students may only park in
student lots. However, in the interest of safety, students with
valid permits may also park in faculty/staff lots from 4 p.m.
to 6 a.m., Monday through Friday and any time on weekends.
Students are not allowed to park in faculty/staff lots during
breaks or student holidays. Vehicles parked without valid
permits or in violation are subject to sanctions, including fines,
registration holds, vehicle immobilization, towing, disciplinary
actions or revocation of campus parking privileges.
