It is my pleasure to welcome you to Mercy College and our outstanding community of scholars.
Mercy College is a dynamic learning community with a focus on student success, offering a unique combination of more than 90 undergraduate and graduate degree and certificate programs in five schools: Business, Education, Health and Natural Sciences, Liberal Arts, and Social and Behavioral Sciences. Our main campus is located in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., with additional locations in the Bronx, Manhattan and Yorktown Heights.
Mercy College brings together an extraordinary group of recognized scholars and we boast world-class faculty consisting of academics as well as practitioners who are engaged and inspiring teachers. The next generation of graduates is prepared with the skills and knowledge that are needed to thrive in a constantly changing world. Our academic culture encourages undergraduate and graduate students to engage in their own learning and to find innovative
solutions to the challenges facing their communities. You will find that the faculty's passion for their disciplines pervades the classroom, from introductory to graduate courses. They take the time to connect with students both inside and outside of the classroom.
Beyond our campuses - across the New York metropolitan area - are extraordinary resources including many individuals associated with our programs and academic initiatives who are eager to help and mentor you toward your educational goals. In this way, we expand the walls of the institution and offer our students the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in the larger global community of which we are all a part. Students become a part of an intimate worldwide learning community and a caring network of support that sustains and enriches them both during and after their years with the College.
Our strong intellectual tradition, the breadth and quality of our academic programs, and the dedication of our superior faculty, position Mercy College to have a major impact on the quality of higher education. We value experiential learning and assist our students in developing a rich understanding of how to apply their knowledge to a variety of settings. We also strive to prepare students to be learners throughout their lives with the foundations of effective communication, critical analysis, scientific and mathematical reasoning, and creative thinking. In addition, we provide our students with ample opportunity to receive academic support through our Center for Academic Excellence & Innovation and the Library Learning Commons.
We are a truly special place, educating committed and talented students. Central to our mission is the success of each individual. It is only with the collective efforts of the dedicated faculty, administrators and staff that the College has been able to make such great progress. As a team, we are positioning Mercy College for a bright future, and we welcome you to become part of our community.
