Each year at the May commencement ceremony, Creighton University recognizes outstanding students with the Spirit of Creighton Award, the highest student honor presented by the University.

The nomination window is now open. The deadline for submissions is March 19. Nominations should be submitted online through the Public Honors and Events Committee website.

Any faculty member, administrator or staff member may submit a nomination. The criteria for nomination is the following:
“Whereas, the Founders of Creighton University, Edward and Mary Lucretia Creighton and John and Sarah Emily Wareham Creighton, were leaders of remarkable initiative and enterprise, of wisdom in action and modesty in achievement, of great personal sacrifice and spiritual formation for the good of others, for which they gave of their time and their resources generously and tirelessly; and in them these qualities were enveloped in the gracious spirit of American individuals who reverenced God. The honor of the award furthers Creighton University’s Jesuit, Catholic tradition: Excellent, purposeful higher education that produces women and men who are committed to service and are empowered to examine, engage and change the world.”
