About Creighton University
The move to the BIG EAST Conference has brought an unprecedented amount of national attention to Creighton University and the athletic department. As a member of the BIG EAST Conference, Creighton student-athletes are experiencing opportunities that once seemed impossible. This new level of competition has required Creighton Athletics to commit additional resources due to the rising costs of scholarships, escalating travel expenses, capital projects and staffing requirements. The Creighton Athletic Development Office was developed to ensure that our student-athletes will receive the resources necessary to be successful in the classroom, on the playing field and in the community, thanks to your generous investments. The Athletic Development Office supports all athletic endeavors of the Creighton University Athletic Department while upholding the mission of Creighton University. The Athletic Development Office provides financial support for scholarships, capital projects and other program enhancements that provide the foundation of success for Bluejay student-athletes.
