Founded in 1878, Creighton is one of 27 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States. The Society of Jesus—the world’s largest Catholic religious order of priests and brothers—was founded in the mid-1500s by St. Ignatius of Loyola. Jesuits, as members of the Society of Jesus, continue the Ignatian tradition by advancing education worldwide.
Many Jesuits live and work on the Creighton campus as professors, administrators, coaches and students. Even the University president is a Jesuit.
Creighton’s mascot has been the bluejay since 1924, and we’ve been part of the BIG EAST conference since 2013.

Our student-athletes excel on the field, the court, the classroom and in community outreach.
