Partnering with Universities and STudents

University campuses are driving innovation, and students are eager to make a difference. The Opus Prize connects Catholic universities and their students with faith-filled entrepreneurs. The result is a mutually beneficial connection, advancing the mission of those doing good around the world by inspiring students to support global causes.

Students help lead the selection process, visiting finalists and making life-changing connections.

Finalists visit university campuses, inspiring students to explore lives of service.

Campuses are called to connect faith and giving in powerful and practical ways.

How we work with University Partners

This Year's Partner

We are proud to partner with Creighton University to present the 2016 Opus Prize.

Creighton University, in Omaha, Neb., is a top-ranked school in the Jesuit tradition for students who want to contribute something meaningful to the world. There, students, faculty and staff thrive in a supportive community committed to Catholic values and traditions, and students learn to become leaders through service to others.

Founded in 1878, Creighton's nine schools and colleges deliver education that connects art, science, law and business with programs in dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, occupational and physical therapy, public health and emergency medical services. More than 8,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students attend Creighton each year to find their place in the world through leadership and service.
