Colin Hurley (Director for Service Learning)

I came to MU in: 2007 (AmeriCorps*VISTA), then returned in 2009

I graduated from:

  • Bucknell University, B.A. in Education
  • Mercyhurst University, M.S. in Organizational Leadership

The best part of my job is…participating in the transformative process of community-engaging work with students and faculty.

My favorite memory from when I was in college is… too many to choose! Sunsets on the quad, Intervarsity worship and fellowship, ultimate Frisbee, tutoring, and dinner with hall mates to name a few…

If I could meet one person, it would be… historically, it would have been Jesus for sure! Current day, I would say some social change activist and actor like Matt Damon…

If I were a superhero I’d be… Fiery Flynn from Thomas and Friends, oh yeah!

Something you may not know about me is… I enjoy singing in community and church choirs.

The book I am reading right now is… Love Does, by Bob Goff.

I have a special talent that nobody knows I have, it is… throwing and catching a left-handed boomerang! (now you know!)

Mercyhurst in three words: Creativity. Compassion. Camaraderie.
