President D’Emilio Featured on EdUp Experience Podcast

President Deanne H. D’Emilio, JD was recently featured as a guest on EdUp Experience podcast. The episode focused on navigating the present-day landscape of higher education and how Mercy institutions such as Gwynedd Mercy University are adapting to create a sustainable path forward. EdUp Experience host, Dr. Joe Sallustio, discussed the latest trends and the competitive landscape of colleges and universities in the Philadelphia area.

When asked about how GMercyU stands out against competitors, President D’Emilio shared the following: “I would say, about how we stand out in a very competitive market in Southeastern Pennsylvania, is we really talk first of our mission and our heritage with the Sisters of Mercy and meeting that next great need.”

The view on higher education has changed over the past several years and, coupled with the enrollment cliff, has caused many to rethink pursuing a college degree.

“I am such a strong believer in the power of higher education. I’ve been doing this in some capacity for 25 years. I started out as a faculty member, so I’ve witnessed the transformational power of higher education. The data is clear about the difference it makes,” President D’Emilio shared with EdUp Experience.
