Mercy & Tradition
A Mercy education—and all of the experiences that come along with it—will shape you intellectually, socially and spiritually.
Our founding organization, the Sisters of Mercy, recognizes that higher education is integral to the mission of the Catholic Church, and that service provides an ongoing opportunity for reflection about the world and our place in it.
At GMercyU, you will find the tradition of service incorporated into everything we do, from classes to clubs to Alternative Spring Break trips and beyond.
