Each year, the entire month of March is devoted to highlighting Mercyhurst's Mercy and Catholic traditions and spirit of the Sisters of Mercy. This year, our programming is centered around the value of "Compassionately Hospitable."
Coordinate a volunteer project through your place of work and get other MU alums involved across the country to start their own service projects as well. The Community Engagement department is willing to offer free consultation and assistance in starting up your project. Fill out the form below if you are interested in discussing options for volunteer opportunities.
Sponsor Alternative Breaks and Service Trips
Many of our students partake in a variety of service projects and trips throughout the year, but are responsible to pay for their own food, shelter and travel costs. Possible examples include:
- $150 pays for one student to volunteer in a week-long Habitat for Humanity build
- $25 pays for one day of a student's Habitat for Humanity trip over spring break
- $250 pays for a day of an international trip to Mexico or Guyana
If you are interested in sponsoring a student for one of these trips, please fill out the form below.
Participate in regional, national, or international service trips with Mercyhurst University
The University often seeks chaperones, meal hosts or guest appearances for service trips. If you often reminisce about the time you spent at Mercyhurst and your service experiences as a student, we welcome you back to experience them again!
