About Mercyhurst University

Mercyhurst University, is a fully accredited, four-year, Catholic, liberal arts institution founded in 1926 by the Sisters of Mercy, who worked hard to make the college and the Erie community a better place. Today, Mercyhurst has evolved considerably. The university is home to more than 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students immersed in more than 50 undergraduate majors with 67 concentrations as well as unique adult programs and eight graduate degrees.

In addition, Mercyhurst University offers 24 varsity level sports, all of which are competitive in either NCAA Division I or II. Furthermore, the university maintains its associate degree programs at a campus in scenic North East, just 20 minutes from Erie.

And in the spirit of our founders, Mercyhurst continues to play an important role in the community. Inspired by our motto, “Carpe Diem” (seize the day), our faculty and students are busy making a difference on and off campus – from “the Hill” to the far corners of the world.
