Mission

and Values

Mission Statement

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.

Values

Magis

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.

Cura personalis

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

and needs.

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.

Standards

of Conduct

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:

6


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

this principle.

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

abilities.

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

ccsr@creighton.edu 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.

Wellbeing

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.

Kinship

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.

Leadership

and Service

Personal

Formation

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.

Courageous

Learning

Multidimensional Wellness

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

satisfying relationships

Financial: Satisfaction with current and future

financial situations

Occupational: Personal satisfaction and

enrichment from one’s work.

Creighton Cupboard

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,

visit creighton.edu/cupboard.

Office of Community

Standards and Wellbeing

Contact:

Creighton Hall

Suite 224

402.280.2775

studentlife.creighton.edu/ocsw

Mission

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

Student Handbook.

••

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.

Process

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.

Outcomes

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.

Philosophy

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.

18


Fraternity and Sorority Life

Standards Board

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

behavioral misconduct.

Discipline is educational, and for that reason, formal rules of

evidence shall not apply in disciplinary hearings. In addition,

members of the board will function as a programming board for

the OCSW. As a programming entity, they will work to promote

the OCSW’s four pillars: integrity, dignity, community and

development.

The Fraternity and Sorority Standards Board

may be granted authority to adjudicate specific

types of cases involving fraternity and sorority

organizations. The board is advised by the assistant

director for Fraternity and Sorority Life and the

assistant director of the Office of Community

Standards and Wellbeing.

For hearings, quorum will consist of five voting

members with representatives from Panhellenic

Council chapters, Interfraternity Council chapters,

and representatives from multicultural Greek

organizations (only if applications are received

from these organizations), the vice president

of judicial affairs for the Interfraternity Council,

and the vice president of judicial affairs for the

Panhellenic Council. The board may hear certain

disciplinary cases involving fraternity and sorority

organizations at the request of the advisor(s) and

with the approval of the senior director of the Office

of Community Standards and Wellbeing in lieu of a

private decision.

Peer Education at Creighton (PEAC)

The mission of PEAC is to promote healthy living

and responsible decision-making among Creighton

students by providing preventative health education

and peer support. PEAC is a dedicated group of

students who support the academic mission of

the University by promoting wellness and “peak

performance” through healthy lifestyle choices.

Peer educators work on various teams to help

educate and spread awareness about health and

wellness issues central to Creighton students’

college experience.

Membership in the group is decided based on

a submitted application. For more information,

holistic wellness, and Recreation and Wellness is proud to offer

both. Whether you want focus and relaxation through yoga, a

high-intensity TRX workout, a chance to play the sports you love

or a crash course on healthy meal preparation, you’ll find what

halls to interact with, mentor and care for freshmen and

sophomore students. Additionally, each residence hall

is supervised by a live-in student affairs professional.

Each professional has earned a master’s degree and has

experience and extensive training in the field.

Living Learning Communities

The Freshmen Leadership Program (FLP) focuses on

challenging students to grow as leaders, to understand what

leadership means to them and to implement leadership

skills learned across campus and the city.

The Honors Community provides students a challenging

and innovative academic alternative to Creighton’s Magis

Core, with individualized attention from top faculty mentors.

The Cortina Living-Learning Community prepares students

to connect their passion for social justice with their academic

and future goals by challenging them to investigate social

inequalities and difficult realities.

Inter Residence Hall Government

The Inter Residence Hall Government (IRHG) is the

voice for all students living on campus. IRHG provides

an excellent opportunity for students to gain valuable

leadership experience by advocating for change, putting

on events for the community, and writing legislation for

facilities or policy changes.

Academic Success Centers

Located in each first year residence hall, Academic

Success Centers provide a permanent home base

for Academic Success Peer Mentors, senior students

dedicated to helping first year-students make a smooth

transition to Creighton academics. Academic Success

Peer Mentors know how to address the stresses of

first-year living because they learned to navigate it

themselves. They’re passionate about supporting

students. Resources offered include schedule making,

study habits, tutoring, programming and much more.

Housing and Auxiliary Services

Creating Excellent Environments

When you live on campus, your Creighton experience

becomes more than an academic adventure. You set

yourself on a path for personal growth, making invaluable

connections and acquiring leadership skills. Housing and

Auxiliary Services enhances the student experience by

creating quality environments—from residence halls to

student centers—for all of these interactions.

Housing assignments for freshman, sophomores and

upperclassmen are coordinated by Housing and

Auxiliary Services, and the Housing and Auxiliary Services

team also processes more than 10,000 event requests

per year, working with student organizations and campus

partners to make sure Creighton’s spaces are set up for

memorable and impactful events.

Discover. Develop. Deliver.

As educators, the Student Leadership and Involvement Center

(SLIC) staff share their gifts and talents to foster student growth and

development. Students are challenged to develop, understand and

reflect upon their values, leadership skills and goals.

In engaging with the SLIC, students and staff will:

••

Seek excellence from themselves and others.

••

Seek and model balanced integration of academic, social,

recreational and spiritual involvement.

••

Respect and celebrate the commonalities and uniqueness of all.

Impact social change through education, reflection and service

that is for and with others.

Share their gifts with our communities for the greater glory of God.

Student Clubs

Join one of more than 200 student clubs at Creighton, or start your

own. Come to the Skutt Shutdown in August or the Winter Involvement

Fair in February to learn more about student clubs. You can also find

contact information for all clubs at cuinvolved.creighton.edu.

To start a new organization, you’ll need four full-time students

interested in joining, a faculty or staff moderator, a mission statement,

a constitution and a calendar of proposed events for the first semester.

You’ll need to set up a meeting with the assistant director of the SLIC

and complete the new student organization form on CU Involved.

Once you’ve submitted your application, it will be reviewed by the

Student Organization Review Committee.

Fraternity and Sorority Life

The Fraternity and Sorority Life experience offers a

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.

CU After Dark

CU After Dark programming offers students fun, unique

and free programming on Thursday, Friday and Saturday

evenings. The program allows students to interact with

an array of campus organizations and departments and

provides a great opportunity to meet new people and

build relationships.

CliftonStrengths for Students

As part of the first-year experience at Creighton, all

students are provided the opportunity to take the

CliftonStrengths for Students assessment. Created by

Gallup, CliftonStrengths identifies your top five strengths

(from a list of 34 total strengths). These strengths

highlight the abilities by which you’re naturally inclined to

succeed—an exciting learning opportunity as you become

more involved in the Creighton community. Strengths will

be integrated into many events, including a workshop

in February.

Family Weekend

Family Weekend is an excellent time for families to come

and learn about a student’s new home at Creighton.

Families can attend events on and off campus to become

more familiar with the Creighton community and the

greater Omaha community. These include athletic events,

a community barbecue, networking with Creighton

professionals and the opportunity to meet other families

of current students.

The Creighton EDGE

Education in the Jesuit tradition

Development of God-given talents

Growth of intellectual, cultural and global perspective

Engaged spirit and sense of purpose

The Creighton EDGE Program is designed to provide

Creighton students with a holistic approach to academic

success, the pursuit of advanced studies in graduate

and professional school, and career planning. Features

of the EDGE include alumni networking, mentoring,

shadowing and portfolio-building internship opportunities.

The EDGE also provides individual and group tutoring,

academic coaching, academic counseling and assistance

with any issues that could impact a student’s ability to be

academically successful at Creighton.

Academic Success

Academic Success programs and services focus on

academic support, student monitoring and retention, and

the transition to college. Students are encouraged to take

advantage of:

••

A nationally certified tutoring program, offering drop-in math,

biology and chemistry tutoring; appointment-based individual

tutoring for most subjects; and collaborative learning sessions.

••

Individualized academic counseling and coaching, where

students learn tips and strategies appropriate for their learning

styles and personal academic goals.

••

Workshops and seminars that teach strategies to help students

understand and manage the academic rigor of Creighton.

One of the more popular options is the Hippocampus Success

Seminar, a fun and interactive four-night series that introduces

students to the way the mind works as it relates to learning

and success at Creighton. Additionally, students with ADHD

may benefit from the EDGE Advantage, a weekly seminar

that shares tips and resources to help students navigate

the transition to college. Other workshops focus on time

management, test anxiety, exam prep and other fundamental

study skills.

••

Academic Strategy Courses, which are credit-bearing courses

(EDGE ® 120 and EDGE ® 130) designed to help students

understand their strengths and areas for improvement

as learners.

34


Advising

The Ratio Studiorum Program (RSP) is Creighton’s

academic advising and orientation program for

freshmen and sophomores. It introduces students to the

requirements, challenges and rewards of life at Creighton.

RSP 100 is taught by faculty advisors, who also serve as

first- and second-year academic advisors and assist with

the development of a student’s four-year academic plan.

Students examine such topics as Creighton’s Jesuit heritage

and values, academic integrity and the core curriculum.

Reading, writing and class discussion entertain issues of

self-exploration and self-discovery.

Pre-health advising through the EDGE offers students

interested in health care careers one-on-one advising

regarding all aspects of preparing to apply to a professional

school. Additionally, students receive guidance on

applicable resources and experiences. Led by the Director

of Pre-Health Advising, faculty and professional advisors are

readily available to assist students.

Pre-Law Advising provides students interested in legal

careers with one-on-one advising to gain a better

understanding of law, the legal profession and the myriad

of related career opportunities. Pre-Law Advising also helps

students discern a career in law, improve their application

profile, and find shadowing and mentoring opportunities with

legal professionals. Both faculty and professional advisors are

readily available to assist students.

Learning Communities

Learning communities allow students with shared academic

interests and experiences to come together to discern options

in pre-professional study. The seminars and co-curricular

activities are designed and offered through the EDGE to

strengthen the candidacy of Creighton students as they

prepare for the graduate/professional school application

process. All learning communities provide students with

opportunities for mentoring, shadowing and networking

John P. Fahey Career Center

The John P. Fahey Career Center is an integral part of the

Creighton EDGE ® . It provides students with opportunities

to develop relationships with employers, career advising,

Contact

Hours

Monday–Friday

8 a.m.–4:30 p.m.

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.

36


What does the Career Center provide?

Career and Academic Exploration

The Career Center is designed to assist students from the

beginning of academic pursuit to graduation and beyond.

Career advisors are available for appointments to meet

with students on an individual basis. Students are strongly

encouraged to take advantage of services early in their

academic careers. They can obtain help clarifying career

goals and options, taking assessments and choosing or

changing majors/minors.

Career and Professional Development

The Career Center sponsors a number of workshops and

seminars on resume writing, interview techniques, job and

internship search strategies, graduate and professional

school preparation and professional etiquette. Career fairs

are offered in the fall and spring semesters and provide

students the opportunity to network with more than 200

representatives from businesses, nonprofit organizations,

government agencies and graduate/professional schools.

Many employers interview for their positions on campus in

the Career Center’s interview rooms.

Internship and Job Search Assistance

The Career Center maintains information and online listings

for local, regional and national internships and jobs online

through Handshake. Students are encouraged to contact

the office with questions regarding the application process

and specific qualifications.

EDGE ® Internship Program

The EDGE ® Internship Program is a carefully supervised,

on-campus learning experience in which students have

purposeful, professional learning outcomes to aid in their

career development. The program provides a hands-on

method for students to validate their choice of major

and/or career field while obtaining real-world experience.

Students are coached and mentored by participating

Connecting to Campus Resources

Students at Creighton have access to a wealth of online

resources. Registering for classes on the NEST and submitting

papers on BlueLine are just two examples of the tools available.

All students receive a NetID and should set up their password

prior to arriving on campus. The NetID and password allow

access to the Creighton systems every student needs. Always

keep your password secret and never include it in written

communication or email.

Computers are critical components of campus life. Besides

helping develop useful skills, having a computer is a significant

daily convenience for personal and academic pursuits. This

is especially true toward the end of semester when demands

upon public computer labs are high. It’s strongly recommended

that you bring a computer with you. But if that’s not an option,

there are computer labs in residence halls, libraries and other

buildings around campus. For a complete list of computer labs,

see doit.creighton.edu/student-services/computer-labs.

Should you need to purchase a computer before coming to

Creighton, the University has an agreement with both Apple ®

and GovConnection for discounted purchases of Apple ® and

Windows computers. You can view your purchasing options at:

doit.creighton.edu/computing-printing/purchase-computer-students.

You may also visit iJay, the Apple ® Authorized Campus Store, in

the Mike and Josie Harper Center (or online at creighton.edu/ijay).

to assist system repairs

3. Meet campus standards for network use

4. Have licensed software and proof of license

5. Make regular backups of their data

Students may print, copy or scan from a Creighton email

account, web browser or print driver. Cost varies by service.

To review costs and get started printing, see

doit.creighton.edu/computing-printing-services/blueprint.

Computer Service and Repair:

It is recommended that students purchase extended

warranty service with all computer purchases (both Apple ®

and Windows). Accidental damage protection is strongly

recommended if offered.

The first place to check for any technical question is the

Service Desk, where full-time analysts (including Apple ®

Certified Service Technicians) provide guidance and

support on any technology issues that arise. Questions may

be sent to doit4students@creighton.edu. Visit

doit.creighton.edu for more information.

The website is also a resource for common support issues.

Please note that the division does provide virus or malware

cleaning and some repair services on personal property,

but students are responsible for providing legal copies

of all media should a reload of their system be required.

Students are also responsible for keeping a backup of their

data. Creighton does not provide a backup service at

this time.

Creighton is an Apple ® Authorized Service Provider and a

Lenovo warranty center. To prevent voiding your warranty,

the Service Desk will not perform hardware repair work on

other brands, but will direct you to the closest authorized

service outlet.

Creighton does not recommend one Windows service

provider over another, but has arranged a discount with

ARN Networks. See arnnetworks.com for more information.

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

Prevention Education

Creighton’s violence prevention program, Green Dot, is

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

and indirectly. A Green Dot is a moment in time when

someone makes the decision to do something in a

potentially high-risk situation. This could be a small or

large action, but it’s the decision to act that makes

a difference.

The VIP Center also offers trainings, workshops and

programs on the topics of dating violence, healthy

relationships, sexual violence, consent and stalking.

Annual Events

The VIP Center hosts annual awareness events for

students throughout the school year. This includes

programming for Dating Violence Awareness Month in

October and Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April.

During the month of April, the VIP Center hosts Denim

Day and Take Back the Night to raise awareness about

sexual violence and provide a safe space for survivors to

tell their stories of victimization and survival to the larger

Creighton community.

Public Safety

Contact:

Schneider Building

2222 Burt St.

Business phone: 402.280.2104

Emergency phone: 402.280.2911

Overview

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

of firearms.

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.

Emergency Notification

System (CreightonAlert)

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

visit creighton.edu/cualert and follow

the instructions.

Crime Prevention

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.

Learn more at creighton.edu/admin/

publicsafety/pom.

••

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

Safety dispatcher.

••

A full-time community outreach officer

makes presentations and develops

programs designed to inform campus

members about the threat of crime and

the prevention resources available

to them.

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.

For more information regarding parking, please visit

creighton.edu/admin/publicsafety/parkinginformation.
