About Misericordia University
Founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1924, Misericordia University is a faith-based higher learning institution based in Dallas, Pennsylvania, that welcomes students of all faiths.
With an emphasis on liberal arts and pre-professional studies, our university operates three colleges on a 123-acre campus, offering nearly 40 degree programs and more than 15 certificate programs.
Through our College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business, and College of Health Sciences and Education, we’re able to cover diverse fields of study, from accounting to computer science to nursing to sport management statistics.
But no matter the field of study, we provide each student with a quality education that aligns with the faith-based tenets of mercy, service, justice, and hospitality. Currently, our University enrolls more than 3,000 students, which includes both undergraduates and graduates.
In carrying out the heartfelt mission of the Sisters of Mercy, Misericordia University provides a student-focused learning environment that fosters intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and respect for all persons. To maintain the integrity of this mission, our University adheres to these core values:
- Mercy, through compassion, love, and caring
- Service, through selflessness, sacrifice, and action
- Justice, through fairness, acceptance, and advocacy
- Hospitality, through dignity, respect, and openness
As a result, we’ve carried on a legacy of offering students a quality education, professional preparation, and service leadership for more than 90 years.
Sisters of Mercy
Tracing back to Dublin, Ireland, the Sisters of Mercy began their vows to service the impoverished, sick, and uneducated in 1831. They came to the United States in 1843 at the invitation of the Bishop of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Still making a difference today, these women of faith continue to commit their lives to God and serve, advocate, and pray for those in need around the world. They focus their efforts on these five areas of critical concern: earth, immigration, nonviolence, racism, and women.
