Misericordia University is a Catholic university in northeast Pennsylvania, founded by the Sisters of Mercy, that provides caring, motivated students with a challenging education. We have dedicated faculty and administrative staff whose members put students first, and who believe in providing personal attention, support, and opportunities that enable our students to experience success. Service to others is woven throughout all that we do and is a passion for everyone associated with our University. The University is experiencing notable but controlled growth – achieving the largest undergraduate enrollment in the school’s history in 2012. Also in 2012, Misericordia is scheduled to complete construction on a new 118-bed student residence hall and a new athletic field house on campus.
