About Creighton University and the Office of Community Standards and Wellbeing

Creighton University, located in Omaha, Nebraska, is a Division I institution with approximately 9,000 students.  We offer a top-ranked education in the Catholic, Jesuit tradition for people who wish to make a meaningful contribution to the world and greater human experience after graduation. We strive to be a place where students, faculty, and staff thrive in a supportive community committed to our values and traditions.

The Office of Community Standards promotes an environment where students are encouraged to act with professional, academic, and personal integrity, and to hold students accountable around issues of integrity. The office provides students with the resources and education needed to respect the dignity of all persons, the policies of the Creighton University community, and the rights of its members both on and off-campus, in addition to the just laws of the civic community and the rights of its members. This education is presented within the framework of our Jesuit identity.

We collaborate with many departments within the Division of Student Life and the academic departments to help students integrate their out of classroom experiences with their academic learning. Our office is also concerned about the moral and ethical development of our students. We expect our students to play an active and respectful role in community life at Creighton and adhere to the Community Standards of Creighton University. We encourage students and student organization to make responsible decisions in their lives inside and outside of the classroom.

The Office of Community Standards and Wellbeing consists of two Assistant Directors and one Senior Director.  Our office not only holds individual behavioral meetings, but also coordinates the Community Standards Board (led by students), alcohol and drug prevention and intervention programs, and other collaborations with our Division of Student Life partners, academic dean’s offices and colleges, and other campus partners.
