Our Name is Mercy. Our Spirit is Compassion.

Established in 1928 by the Sisters of Mercy and focused on their five critical concerns — earth, immigration, nonviolence, racism and women — Mount Mercy University's curriculum guides students in exploring and working towards a more just, equal and peace-filled world.

With over 30 on-campus clubs and organizations, students can connect with others who share similar values and interests. The university's strong Campus Ministry culture engages students and encourages exploration of faith through daily Mass, spiritual direction, reflection groups, service learning and volunteer opportunities.
