Consistent with its Catholic identity and Mercy heritage, Mercyhurst University educates women and men in a culture where faith and reason flourish together, where the beauty and power of the liberal arts combine with an appreciation for the dignity of work and a commitment to serving others. Confident in the strength of its student-faculty bonds, the university community is inspired by the image of students whose choices, in life and work, will enable them to realize the human and spiritual values embedded in everyday realities and to exercise leadership in service toward a just world.
Pride. Service. Leadership. Education. These are the developmental components the Office of Residence Life & Student Conduct at Mercyhurst University actively promotes and embodies. We provide a co-curricular experience, resulting in increased bonds, values, multicultural appreciation and meaningful interactions with fellow classmates and student leaders. We encourage students to be active members of their residential experience while maintaining acceptable standards of behavior. We hold students accountable for respecting the rights, privileges, and properties of all members of the campus community through an educational student conduct process. Students leave our residential experience well prepared to enter the world beyond the gates with the skills necessary to be contributing members of an ever-evolving society.
