Creighton, a top tier university, was founded in 1878 in the Jesuit intellectual tradition, which has dominated values-based education for more than 400 years. We approach education with a passion for learning and a zeal for making a difference in our world. We learn through dialogue and pursue the truth in all its forms. Our Jesuit vision commits us to form women and men of competence, conscience, and compassion who have learned from reflecting upon their experiences of being for and working with others.
Creighton University is ranked #1 among comprehensive Midwestern universities by U.S. News & World Report, Best Colleges Edition.
Service at All Levels
Creighton University exists for students and learning. Members of the Creighton community are challenged to reflect on transcendent values 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.
The University describes five ways in which it carries out its mission of service for and with others:
- Professional Education—more commonly called "field education/clinicals," is skill-based with emphasis on the student's professional development. Conducted under the close supervision of faculty and/or community professionals, students apply course work to real life situations.
- Service-Learning—is a holistic, educational partnership between the instructor, community, and students that integrates service into an academic course in a context of personal growth, shared reflection, and moral and social responsibility.
- Community Service—enables members of the Creighton community to carry out the Jesuit mission of service for and with others through a variety of volunteer opportunities ranging from one-time projects to commitments involving significant time and reflection.
- Faculty/Staff Outreach—describes the many presentations and time devoted to service on boards, commissions, and committees that faculty and staff give to the community - locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.
- Community Resource—includes incidences when the University provides venues for the education and personal enrichment of the larger community.
The College of Business Administration at Creighton has been accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business - AACSB INTERNATIONAL - the premier business education accrediting organization since 1949, and is one of only 633 accredited schools in the US.
