In addition to the many opportunities offered by the SCSJ, there are multiple other organizations around campus that work to develop leaders and live out the Jesuit identity.
As your academic development progresses at Creighton, so will the development of your faith and spirituality. As with any moment of personal growth, you may find yourself facing moments of challenge and choice unlike any other time in your life. We’re here to take that journey with you — no matter what faith tradition you come from — by offering means of worship, prayer and support, formation and community, experiencing faith through service to others, and providing a listening ear when you need it.
We are a community comprised of sophomores, and we live in Heider Hall on Creighton’s campus. As a community, we care about things like justice, love, service, community-building and developing, faith, conversation, hospitality, politics, and the like.
If you’re excited about learning in a unique environment, want a challenging service site, question what it means to be part of a just society and you’re OK with a little discomfort – you just might be ready for this program!
Encuentro Dominicano is unlike any typical study abroad experience. Creighton University has maintained its relationship as a Catholic/Jesuit institution in the Dominican Republic for nearly 40 years. For this reason, Encuentro Dominicano seeks students who will maintain our integrity with the Dominican people and commit themselves wholeheartedly to this experience.
The ILAC Center in the Dominican Republic is an international, Catholic, Ignatian-inspired, collaborative health care and educational organization that exists to promote the integral well-being and spiritual growth of all participants. It is built upon the values of Ignatius of Loyola, Founder of the Jesuits (Society of Jesus).
All of Creighton’s ILAC programs emphasize the importance of global vision and understanding in the process of educating well-rounded individuals. To this end it offers dental, medical, nursing, pharmacy, law, physical therapy and occupational therapy, undergraduate and high school students, and also to faculty-led groups, medical/surgical teams and other colleges the opportunity for service-learning and immersion experiences in the rural Dominican Republic.
