Since its founding 90 years ago by the Sisters of Mercy, Mount Mercy has never lost sight of our founding mission: to provide a career-launching, life-affirming education in service of the common good.
The nearly 1,900 men and women who make up our student body come from all over Iowa and the world. They choose Mount Mercy for our small, hands-on classes, meaningful faculty interaction, vibrant student life and our commitment to leadership and compassionate service. Mount Mercy alumni are the backbone of their eastern Iowa communities — nurses, teachers, business professionals, and civic leaders — and living proof of the merits of a Mercy education.
