Creighton University Requests Letters of Interest
By November 19th

As you may be aware, the Creighton University 85kW solar array south of Cuming Street is presently being decommissioned due to the construction of the new C.L. Werner Health Sciences building, which will be outfitted with a new, larger system on its rooftop. The committee members, listed below, are working to identify Creighton faculty, staff, and/or students, as well as community partners and non-profits, that will help them to ensure this infrastructure is distributed, cared for, and recommissioned properly. 

  • Max Markuson DiPrince
  • Alex Webert
