Creighton is a Jesuit university, rooted in the Catholic tradition. At Creighton they live this mission and are guided by our identity. Because they are Catholic, they approach education with a passion for learning and a zeal for making a difference in our world. In the Catholic intellectual tradition, they celebrate our diversity, they learn through dialogue, and they pursue the truth in all its forms. As a Jesuit university they are continually bringing the richness of a 450 year old educational tradition to bear on the most contemporary issues of our world. Their Jesuit vision commits them to form women and men of competence, conscience and compassion who have learned from reflecting upon their experiences of being for and with others. They do this in service of a faith that does justice.
