The ACE Mission and Values

Mount Mercy's Academic Center for Excellence is committed to academic excellence, student success, leadership and service to the community, and to providing a quality learning environment. ACE is Mount Mercy's one-stop learning center for all students.

Our mission is to provide academic support services for all students via the building of academic skills and confidence. Our objective is to generate independent learners moving toward their academic goals. Working collaboratively with faculty members and other offices on campus we are able to provide referrals and provide students with the guidance, encouragement, foundation and support they need to be successful at Mount Mercy and beyond.
