IGGY Award

The IGGY Award, affectionately named after the Jesuit founder St. Ignatius of Loyola, is an annual student recognition initiative led by the Office of Student Retention at Creighton University. The award goes to those who have been instrumental in helping make the student’s Creighton 2020-2021 fall semester experience a caring and supportive one.

At the conclusion of the fall semester, students were invited to nominate faculty, staff and student leaders as their IGGY.

All of those nominated for an IGGY Award are listed below. They are receiving a congratulatory letter informing them that one or more students have nominated them along with the nominee’s comments. They will also receive an IGGY bookmark to use or display to recognize their efforts.

Please join the Office of Student Retention in congratulating your faculty, staff and student leaders for their exemplary efforts in supporting our students on so many fronts.
