About Mount Mercy

Since its founding 80 years ago by the Sisters of Mercy, Mount Mercy University has been many things: a girls’ academy for training young teachers and nurses, a two-year college for women, a four-year coed liberal arts college, and now a full university. But we’ve never lost sight of our founding mission: to provide a career-launching, life-affirming education in service of the common good.

The more than 1,600 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.
