Program areas at Creighton University

Higher Education: Instruction - Creighton University, founded in 1878, is a private, Catholic, Jesuit educational institution with nearly 8,700 students of diverse faiths, races, and ethnic backgrounds from across the United States and 57 countries. The University provides its nearly 4,400 undergraduate and 4,300 professional and graduate students a balanced educational experience, a rigorous academic agenda and a broad range of disciplines. Creighton's distinctive approach to education instills not just information but ideals, imbues not just technical skills but critical and creative thinking, and inspires not just competence but professional distinction and faith-based leadership and service. In addition to the College of Arts and Sciences, the University's oldest and largest school or college, Creighton University includes the Heider College of Business, the College of Nursing, the Graduate School, the Schools of Dentistry, Law, Medicine, Pharmacy and Health Professions, and College of Professional and Continuing Education.
Student Life Programs (including Auxiliary Services) - Guided by Jesuit, Catholic values and in support of Creighton University's mission, the Division of Student Life fosters holistic student development in the Ignatian tradition through its programs and services, to produce students engaged in their communities with compassion, confidence and character. Student Life programs include Residential Life; Student Counseling Services; Student Health Education and Compliance; Community Standards and Wellbeing; Student Leadership and Involvement Center - includes New Student Orientation (Welcome Week and Summer Preview) and oversight of Creighton Students Union (student government), Fraternity and Sorority Life, and nearly 300 registered student organizations; Recreation and Wellness - includes intramural/club sports and fitness programs; the student life function of the Encuentro Dominicano study abroad program; Housing Services (approximately 2,500 students live in one of the eight residence halls on campus); Dining Services; Student Centers; Centralized Reservations; and Creighton University's Retreat Center in Griswold, IA.
Higher Education: Health Care Services - Creighton University's four health sciences schools - dentistry, medicine, nursing, and pharmacy and health professions - educate healthcare professionals who are highly trained in healthcare delivery. Creighton University maintains health science campuses in Omaha and Phoenix, with the Omaha campus offering training programs in all of the aforementioned health science specialties and the Phoenix campus offering programs in medicine, nursing, pharmacy and occupational therapy. In June 2021, the University occupied a newly constructed 183,000 sq. ft. facility in Phoenix, which houses classrooms, learning enrichment areas, simulation laboratories, academic support services, faculty and staff offices and community education space for the existing and expanded medicine and nursing programs, plus new offerings in pharmacy, physical therapy and occupational therapy. Total enrollment on the Phoenix Campus is expected to approach 900 health professions students by 2025. Creighton's health sciences schools currently provide healthcare education for over 3,500 dental, medical, nursing, pharmacy, and occupational and physical therapy students.
