Mercy is our middle name. Making a difference in our communities is what we do.
Gwynedd Mercy University was founded in 1948 by the Sisters of Mercy. For nearly 200 years, the Sisters of Mercy have been serving the most vulnerable among us, finding ways to heal the sick, administer to the poor, and educate the next generation of servant-leaders.
GMercyU carries forth their mission by preparing students for successful careers and lives filled with meaning and purpose. Our tradition of service touches everything we do, from classes to clubs to Alternative Spring Break trips and beyond.
The community feel and the Critical Concerns of Mercy have brought really great people to GMercyU, and that’s enabled me to make bonds I’ll probably have for the rest of my life.” —Giavanna DeMarco ’20, Psychology
A little bit of mercy makes the world less cold and more just." —Pope Francis
