A Culture of Belonging
GMercyU attracts students of all backgrounds and beliefs, and it’s no surprise why.
As a small school with a warm, inclusive, and tight-knit community, we celebrate our differences, learn from each other, and embrace the work that's vital to continually improving the experience of our students, faculty, and staff.
One thing that really unites our community is our commitment to making a difference — for ourselves, for each other and for our communities. After all, Mercy is our middle name. No matter your major, you’ll find that our tradition of service is part of your GMercyU journey, both in and out of the classroom. Students learn that what you do shows who you are, both professionally and personally.
GMercyU draws the kinds of people who are inspired by our mission and goals, and they have created our culture of belonging – one that we’re proud of, and one that will surely make you feel right at home. Visit our campus and see for yourself.
