Mercy's Workplace Culture

Why Work At Mercy

Working @ Mercy: Our Staff

  • Masele Kibassa: I graduated from here and I never left. When you meet people like that you fall in love with the institution, and you make it your mission to stay.  This is what I was brought into this world to do. 

  • Simona Cazes: I love that I’m able to work in a place where I really feel as though we are changing people’s lives for the better.  Mercy had immediately become like a second home to me because I enrolled in classes here, I was a student, and I also started working here as a student worker.  And after getting my master’s degree here I was offered a full-time job. 

  • Raj Kumar: It’s not only being proud personally but being proud for Mercy College.  That’s what makes me proud is that collaboratively we’re all achieving something great here. 

Working @ Mercy: Our Professors

  • Nagaraj Rao: The mission of mercy college.  Giving education to all the motivated students, if we can build their skills and make them succeed in life, that’s changing the whole family.  That’s what we want to do. 

  • Bogdana Vladescu: Mercy is my home away from home. I just fell in love with the mission of mercy and being able to serve, I just wanted to give back, it’s a wonderful experience. 

  • Dorothy Balancio: I have several faculty that say I’m never leaving teaching. I love the students, I love teaching here, I love what we’re doing here, so the mission is something that’s really part of who we are.  It’s an absolute family.  It’s who I am. 

Interested in Working as a PACT Mentor?

The PACT program is Mercy College’s signature program for ensuring student success from day one through graduation.  It is a personalized mentoring program where PACT (Personalized Achievement Contract) personnel work 1:1 with students throughout college, helping them through the entire college experience – from choosing classes to balancing work/life/school through to career launch.

PACT turns the old model of advising on its head.  Instead of one person for financial aid, another for academics, PACT mentors are trained to do it all.  It is a hugely rewarding career, and our students are immensely grateful.
