The Charles Zuegner and Mary Carol Zuegner Endowed Scholarship

The Charles Zuegner and Mary Carol Zuegner Endowed Scholarship is named for Carol Zuegner, PhD — associate professor of journalism and the Joella Cohen Endowed Chair — and her late father, Chuck Zuegner. He taught at Creighton for 30 years and was fondly known as Mr. Z to his students.

As an undergraduate at Creighton, Carol Zuegner, PhD, learned from professors — including her father — who were dedicated to the formation of discerning, critical minds to report the news.

“With my dad and other journalism faculty, I always felt the sense that I was being mentored, that I was being cared for and that we, in turn, were caring for the human being at the end of every story. That’s the message I want to continue to bring out.”

— Carol Zuegner, PhD

Honoring their legacies

Your gift to the Charles Zuegner and Mary Carol Zuegner Endowed Scholarship honors the legacies of two dedicated Creighton faculty while supporting students with a passion for journalism.

“I would not be where I am today without Dr. David Haberman and Chuck Zuegner, and it is no surprise that Z’s daughter, Dr. Zuegner, is continuing his legacy and impacting the lives of Creighton students today.”

— Kevin Sarver, BA’89

“When I received the Zuegner Scholarship it made it clear to me how much of a family the journalism department is. It was clear to me how much Carol’s dad meant to her, and that made the scholarship even more meaningful. To this day, I have that feeling of family when I meet current journalism majors at Creighton."

— Danny Sullivan, BA’01
