Who We Are
Creighton EDGE Resources
Students are encouraged to take advantage of the Academic Success services, which include:
- Academic support, group tutoring, appointment-based individual tutoring and collaborative learning initiatives
- Individualized academic counseling and coaching
- Academic strategy programs, EDGE 120 and 130 courses, academic management workshops and campus outreach
The John P. Fahey Career Center is an integral part of the EDGE and provides students with opportunities to develop relationships with employers and benefit from career counseling. Creighton’s faculty, staff and administrators provide programming and assistance with graduate and professional school options and planning.
The EDGE Shadowing Program matches a Creighton pre-professional student with a Creighton Alumni or friend to allow the student to observe the day in the life of a professional in their field of interest. Shadowing gives a pre-professional student a more complete understanding of the expectations and rewards of their professional interest.
Learning communities allow students with shared academic interests and experiences to come together to discern options in pre-professional study. The seminars and co-curricular activities are designed by and offered through the EDGE to help Creighton students prepare for the graduate/professional school application process. All learning communities provide students with opportunities for mentoring and shadowing, as well as networking with pre-professional students, faculty and alumni.
