The Exciting Evolution of Creighton University’s Web Presence - February 8, 2022

A lot has changed! And the changes are leading us to a better digital presence for Creighton. But with change comes the necessary adaptation to new processes and we’d like to help bridge the gap. We’ll talk about the new external creighton.edu website, as well as the new internal my.creighton.edu website and the phased approach that will lead us into the future.
