The Purpose of Shadowing

The Creighton EDGE provides students with shadowing and mentoring opportunities. Each relationship is guided by the interests and goals of the mentor and student. Mentoring relationships can cover all aspects of professional and personal development. Experiential learning opportunities provide the bridge from the classroom to life as a young adult and professional.

The Impact of Shadowing

Since I was a young elementary school student I wanted to study the weather. I contacted the EDGE program and set up a shadowing experience with the local National Weather Service. And the shadowing experience taught me that I don’t want that job. But, I am not discouraged, I’m instead empowered by it; because this predicament is exactly why I chose Creighton. I know that if I’m going to get anywhere, Creighton is going to help me do it. The EDGE program is assisting me in finding my niche.
