Creighton University Has Tougher Vaccine Standards for Students Than Staff

Creighton University Has Tougher Vaccine Standards for Students Than Staff

“Creighton does not grant religious waivers.”

This isn’t right. If you’re going to have rules, they should be the same for everyone.

Campus Reform reports:

Creighton University applies stricter vaccine requirements for students than for staff

Creighton University required all students “to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to their arrival on campus.” But the same policy stated that faculty and staff were only “strongly encouraged to be vaccinated.”

Campus Reform spoke with Patrice Quadrel, a former senior who was forcibly unenrolled from Creighton because she chose to not comply with the school’s vaccination policy.

On Sept. 9 Quadrel said she received a notice, informing her that she was, “in violation of the Creighton University Standards of Conduct: #L.2. Failure to Comply: interfering or failing to comply with the directives of University officials acting in the performance of their duties.” She was removed from her classes effective the following day.

As a result of this violation and subsequent withdrawal, Ms. Quadrel is banned from campus and not allowed to attend any Creighton events without exception.

She told Campus Reform that she attempted to apply for a religious exemption because, “My faith does not align with the manufacturing and testing process that was used to create these vaccines. Taking this vaccine is against my religious beliefs.” She was denied and told Creighton does not accept religious exemptions.

The schools posted policy confirms that “Creighton does not grant religious waivers.”

An email sent to Quadrel on August 26, informed her that Creighton would no longer allow new medical exemptions. Whether this was only referring to the COVID-19 vaccine or all immunization requirements was not specified in the email. However, on the school’s official website under the tab “Can I be granted a medical exemption from an immunization?”, it states that students still can submit medical exemptions to the university.

Creighton was literally founded as a Jesuit school. How very sad…Omaha has become an embarrassment to the conservatives in our state.The GOP representatives from eastern Nebraska, including Ben Sasse, have proven that they are part of the old guard and no longer represent the rest of the state.

Well, of course the standards are different.
Students are free to leave campus, visit bars and restaurants, movie theatres, and even their family homes. Who knows what you’re apt to pick up there!
Faculty are communally housed in cells under the Coliseum grandstands, and let out only long enough to lecture and make guest appearances on MSNBC. It’s a well-controlled environment.
There are no standards at all for the administration because none are needed They are permanently confined to their UFO because nitrogen is poisonous to them.
