President’s Message

deannemervcommencement2022.pngWelcome to Gwynedd Mercy University!

Here, you'll find a community rich in history and rooted in the values of Mercy. Whether you'll join us for classes on our Main Campus in Gwynedd Valley, Pennsylvania or prefer to take classes online or at our satellite campus, I look forward to welcoming you into our tight-knit GMercyU community.

At GMercyU, faculty and staff are committed to academic excellence and care deeply about the success of our students. They love being a part of the transformation that our students experience as they learn about their disciplines, the world, and themselves. Our graduates are successful in a wide array of careers including education, nursing, science, criminal justice, business, law, social services and entrepreneurial endeavors as well as graduate school. These graduates always cite the personal attention they received along with the focus on helping others as reasons that contributed to their success at Gwynedd Mercy University and in their lives after graduation.

It is especially gratifying to see the many ways in which faculty, staff, and students work together to make a positive difference in the world. Whether it is participating in a service trip during Alternative Spring Break, working at a university-run health care clinic to meet the needs of local residents, or helping to end hunger in the region, GMercyU students find many ways to engage in community service.

Our students can choose from more than 40 undergraduate majors and graduate programs, which are housed in three schools: The School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Business and Education, and the Frances M. Maguire School of Nursing and Health Professions.

While our campus and its offerings have evolved since GMercyU was founded in 1948, our commitment to preparing students for successful careers and meaningful lives in society remains as strong today as it was then.

I look forward to greeting you personally and officially welcoming you to Gwynedd Mercy University!


Deanne H. D'Emilio, JD
