A Message From Our President

Creighton University's President, Timothy R. Lannon, S.J.The essence of Creighton University is its mission. The University exists for students and learning in the Catholic, Jesuit tradition, and its resources are dedicated to this purpose.

Creighton offers some 7,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students exemplary, challenging educational experiences coupled with personal attention from faculty-mentors. In addition, Creighton offers interdisciplinary learning and unique opportunities for collaborative research within arts and sciences, business, the health sciences and law.

Here at Creighton, we seek to instill in our students a passion for learning and a desire to serve, whether it be through patient care, community outreach or other avenues. As a Creighton student, I was challenged daily to reflect on core values, strive for excellence, and reach my full potential. It is my hope that you, too, will experience academic success, as well intellectual and spiritual growth during your time at Creighton.


Timothy R. Lannon, S.J.
