    Jill Creighton  

     I am one of two full-time professional staff members in the Office of Community Standards & Wellness.  In my capacity, I serve as a housing liaison between the University of Colorado Denver and our student housing, as a student conduct officer, as a Wellness educator, and as a case manager for our Behavioral Evaluation and Threat Assessment team.  I love working directly with our five peer health educators (PHE’s) to create campus programs surrounding Wellness topics that closely affect the college student population, especially since I was a PHE as an undergraduate student.  This is my first full academic year with UC Denver, though I’ve worked within the CU system since 2007 at the Boulder campus.  I have a Bachelor’s degree in music from Central Washington University and  Master of Education degree in College Student Services Administration from Oregon State University.
