At Creighton University, "diversity" describes the rich variety of (a) states of being, (b) ways of thinking, and (c) individual, group, and organizational behaviors that are present in our community. Creighton University is committed to a policy of welcoming all expressions of diversity that are in keeping with the Ignatian tradition of fostering an inclusive, compassionate, and respectful environment for our students, staff, faculty, and guests.
Our admitted class is a well-rounded and balanced group.
