In 2012 Mount Mercy University announced plans to renovate a former army and navy training facility on the city’s NE side into a state-of-the-art graduate center. The center opened its doors for classes in 2013.
“This fall marks one year since our graduate programs have called the Mount Mercy University CRST International Graduate Center home,” said Associate Provost Tom Castle. “It’s a beautiful space with study areas, a conference room for community use, and cutting-edge classrooms.”
The University will welcome members of the business community to explore the building and learn about Mount Mercy initiatives during their Aug. 21 PM Exchange through the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance.
“We’re looking forward to the PM Exchange,” Castle said. “Guests will learn about Mount Mercy’s outdoor athletic complex, our six graduate programs, enjoy touring the center and they’ll have a great networking experience.”
Members of the community are invited to attend the PM Exchange from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 21 at the CRST International Graduate Center, 1599 Wenig Road NE.
