Mount Mercy University is partnering with the Iowa Department of Corrections to offer a 10 percent tuition scholarship for employees who enroll in any of the university’s undergraduate accelerated, online or graduate programs.
Mount Mercy University began its 2016-17 academic year with the largest enrollment in the university’s nearly 90 year history—an estimated total of 1886 students. The fall 2016 student body is on track to set records in number of traditional freshmen, residential students, student-athletes, new online students and international students.
Using her two areas of study in tandem, junior Mount Mercy English and psychology major Courtney Snodgrass has published two poetry collections, writes commissioned pieces, is spent part of the year editing Mount Mercy’s Paha Review and is in the daunting process of starting a nonprofit to benefit area veterans.
Both Kim and Angie believe without Mount Mercy, their education and careers at Pearson would be much different than they are today. “I owe a lot to [Angie] and her encouragement,” Kim said. “I went to school to be a travel professional, and that industry took a serious downturn. We would take walks and she would say, ‘Kim, do what I did. Start taking classes and take a chance.’”
Lubben, who had two sons at home while attending undergraduate classes, chose Mount Mercy because of its convenient location, small class size and professors’ passion. Barb Pooley, who was an influential mentor during Lubben’s time at MMU, was the one who recommended her for the job at Raining Rose. She said she also learned important lessons in leadership from her mentors at Mount Mercy.
Academic work by members of Mount Mercy University’s master’s-level Marriage and Family Therapy program is prominently featured in the March 1 edition of Contemporary Family Therapy, a peer-reviewed academic journal in the field of marriage and family therapy.

The role of a parent is not one that is easy, and it certainly does not come with a guide book. At best, parents are guided by the people around them, and to build a successful family relationship, couples must lean on each other for support. But even with a […]
As a poet, I’m always on the lookout for anything that might contain the seed of a poem. Often I find ideas sprouting right in my own backyard, but this past summer, funded by a summer scholarship grant, I followed a potential poetic trail to the Angola State Penitentiary in […]
The diagnosis and subsequent treatment of cancer can be a long and painful process. At times it almost seems like the cure is worse than the disease, but many healthcare professionals today are working feverishly to help patients make it through these physically and emotionally difficult times.

Tessa Friason isn’t your typical college student. She didn’t return home for summer break to relax next to the pool, watch movies with friends or go back to the job she held in high school. The senior nursing major spent the start of her summer vacation in Atlanta, where she […]
