Student Projects

Here are some of the experiential projects our students have worked on in just our first few years:

  • Organized a city-wide “Pedal for the Planet Duathlon” that raised nearly $2,000 for the design and installation of bicycle racks in the city of Erie.
  • Collaborated with community partners in an effort to establish a network of urban community gardens in Erie.
  • Helped to lead middle- and high-school students in the city of Erie in conducting energy audits aimed at reducing energy usage and strengthening conservation.
  • Spearheaded a successful effort to install a green roof on a wing of our science hall.
  • Drafted the beginnings of our first-ever Mercyhurst Climate Action Plan directed toward our long-term goal of carbon neutrality.
  • Mounted a successful campus-wide campaign to establish a Student Sustainability Fee/Fund to support green energy and other sustainability projects on campus.
  • Engagement with a wide range of sustainable organic farming projects at our west Erie County campus in Girard, Pa., where an exciting array of additional sustainable development initiatives are now taking root.
