As outlined in our strategic plan and approved by the Board of Trustees, Mount Mercy's vision statement supports the growth and expansion of the university through well-thought-out and progressive enhancements.

Mount Mercy is an institution that offers diverse academic opportunities for traditional, transfer, accelerated and graduate students. We continue to be a faith-guided, academics-focused institution, carrying on the Catholic intellectual tradition and values established by our founders, the Sisters of Mercy.

Developing Projects

Mount Mercy was proud to announce the acquisition of 22 acres of land near main campus, which will be home to the university’s first outdoor athletic complex, in summer 2013. The Robert W. Plaster Athletic Complex will benefit both the university and surrounding communities by providing a safe space for activities beneficial to well-being. Community needs are a top priority as Mount Mercy plans and executes construction of the complex.

To expand international opportunities, the university continues to establish carefully selected partnerships with institutions in the United States and abroad. These partnerships provide students the opportunity to increase global awareness, personal growth, academic learning and professional prospects. Mount Mercy encourages students to study abroad, and offers financial aid to those seeking new experiences in unfamiliar places.
