LAUDATO SI: A LOOK AT THE PAPAL ENCYCLICAL ON THE ENVIRONMENT Seven Creighton faculty members — from business to theology — reflect on Pope Francis’ 184-page encyclical on climate change, Laudato Si, and its messages and challenges for Catholics and non-Catholics alike. Page 16.WITH POETRY, PURPOSE & PRAYER The imagery-rich words of a 19th century Jesuit poet resonated across the decades to inspire nearly 2,000 members of the Creighton community and guests at the inauguration of the University’s 25th president, the Rev. Daniel S. Hendrickson, S.J. Two former Creighton presidents were among those gathered. Page 24.OLD MEETS NEW IN STUNNING BIBLE ON LOAN TO CREIGHTON A Heritage Edition of the Saint John’s Bible, the first handwritten, hand-illuminated Bible created by a Benedictine monastery in 500 years, is currently on loan to Creighton University. This distinctive seven-volume Bible combines spectacular modern-day imagery with meticulous Old World craftsmanship. Page 28.WHILE THE WORLD WATCHED The roots of international law trace back 70 years to Courtroom 600 in the Palace of Justice in Nuremberg, Germany, and the prosecution of Nazi war criminals who perpetrated the Holocaust. Today, Creighton law students stand in that very room and ponder issues of worldwide law and justice. Page 34.SURVEY SAYS In late 2014, alumni participated in a survey jointly conducted by Creighton and Gallup, Inc., which was designed to discover the true value of a CU degree. The conclusions shed light on the ways in which Creighton delivers results that last a lifetime and revealed how the University stacks up in comparison with alumni of other universities nationally.
