Welcome to the Mercyhurst community!
Mercyhurst University seeks to attract, develop and retain quality and committed faculty, staff and administration. With hospitality central to the Mercy Mission, we’re committed to building a culturally diverse workplace that resembles the world we seek to serve. We believe our students’ educations are best served through a challenging learning experience that defies sameness of thought and offers exposure to unfamiliar dimensions of the world. Living, learning and working at Mercyhurst means being part of a campus that insists on respect for all people. At Mercyhurst, we’ve come to recognize diversity is nearly limitless in scope. Our campus welcomes people of different faiths, ethnicities, cultural traditions, sexual and gender identities, and socioeconomic backgrounds — and there’s always room for more. We invite you read on and learn more about what it means to be part of the Mercyhurst community.

Erie, Pennsylvania—one of USA Today’s Top 25 Best Small College Towns—is a place with small-town personality and big-city opportunities. Located on the southern shore of Lake Erie, Erie’s most beautiful attraction is Presque Isle State Park, offering 13 miles of sandy beaches and a 22-mile multipurpose trail—perfect for swimming, boating, biking, kayaking or catching an incredible sunset.
There’s plenty to do in the city and surrounding area, too: history, art and children’s museums; world-class entertainment at the Erie Playhouse or Warner Theatre; dining at any number of first-rate restaurants; countless shopping opportunities; minor league sports teams (baseball, hockey and basketball); and skiing at a nearby ski resorts, just to name a few.
