Faculty and Staff

Mercyhurst is proud of its exceptional faculty, who teach outstanding programs in the liberal arts and sciences. Many are leaders in their respective fields. Most classes have fewer than 25 students and the student:faculty ratio is 14:1. All undergraduate classes are taught exclusively by faculty (not teaching assistants), affording close interaction between faculty and students, one of the hallmarks of a Mercyhurst education.
