The Ryan Foundation Supports Catholic Education with Donation to Creighton University

In January of 2023, The Ryan Foundation generously donated $399,933.00 to Creighton University. This gift holds special significance due Dr. Ryan's and Eileen's connections to Creighton University.

Creighton University, located in the United States, has a rich history dating back to September 2, 1878. On that day, five Jesuits, two teachers, and 120 students commenced classes at the newly established Creighton College. Fast forward to today, the institution, now known as Creighton University, has grown remarkably and is proud to have a student body of over 8,000. It stands among the 28 Jesuit institutions of higher education in the U.S.

Creighton University is a Catholic and Jesuit institution that aspires to excellence in its carefully selected undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs. Upholding its Catholic identity, Creighton is dedicated to pursuing truth in all its manifestations, guided by the living tradition of the Catholic Church. In its Jesuit spirit, the university is inspired by the tradition of the Society of Jesus, providing an integrative worldview stemming from a profound understanding and love for Jesus Christ.

As a comprehensive university, Creighton's educational approach encompasses multiple colleges and professional schools, aiming to enhance the intellectual, social, spiritual, physical, and recreational dimensions of its students’ lives, and fostering a commitment to justice.

Creighton University is a student-focused institution dedicated to learning. Its community members are encouraged to reflect upon higher values, including their relationship with God, within an environment that promotes free inquiry, belief, and religious worship. Core values of the institution include service to others, the importance of family life, the inviolable dignity of each individual, and appreciation of ethnic and cultural diversity.
