Gwynedd Mercy University produces graduates who go on to create lives and careers with deep meaning. the University's alumni are teachers, serving youth in the Tri-State Region. They are nurses and allied health professionals, improving the health of our families and friends. They are business professionals, making connections and contributing to a flowing economy. They are social workers, police officers and scientists, helpers, protectors and researchers. Though their career paths are different, all Gwynedd Mercy University alumni share an education rooted in Mercy, an emphasis on moral and ethical values not paralleled by any other institution. The Gwynedd Mercy University Futures Campaign will continue this tradition of producing distinguished Mercy graduates.
The Campaign seeks to address those programs on campus that build upon our existing strengths by:
- upgrading skills laboratories and equipment
- emphasizing critical thinking and problem solving through the arts and sciences to shape civically engaged students
- enabling business faculty to empower students as leaders in an increasingly diversified global environment
- responding to the rapidly changing uses of technology in health care,while simultaneously addressing the critical shortage of qualified nursing faculty
the University plans to create a new, cutting-edge facility for the School of Business and School of Education. The building will help Gwynedd Mercy University meet current challenges in the education field, including a shortage of technologically-proficient and ethically-centered teachers, a lack of teachers in urban schools, and the need for more educators that hold a distinction in teaching math and science.
