Student Leadership & Involvement Center

It is the goal of Creighton University to develop an individual who not only has mastered the content of his or her academic courses, but who also has broad interests and who has developed skills in interpersonal relations. To aid in this process, the University promotes a wide range of student organizations and activities. Students are encouraged to take an active interest in one of more than 200 clubs and organizations, including sports, fraternities and sororities, honor societies, cultural, religious, political, publications, government, professional, academic and service organizations.

For more information and a description of each organization or if interested in starting a new organization, please contact the Student Leadership & Involvement Center in the Skutt Student Center or online here.
