Students have alleged that faculty conspire with each other

In General Psychology, a student learns about how the human brain functions, only to have that same information applied in Pathophysiology. Logical fallacies learned in English Composition are used to debunk the rationale justifying some corrupt behavior in a debate in Bioethics or Critical Thinking.

The large biological molecules discussed in General Biology and Biochemistry are the very same energy sources at play in Applied Nutrition. Even worse, this “conspiracy” persists into the professional programs and careers. Information gained in Sociology helps students to understand how societal factors can MartiSueClose.jpgimpact health behaviors. The skills learned in Math for General Studies or College Algebra are essential for accurately performing drug calculations and safely administering the correct dosage, while the principles of Servant Leadership establish and/or cement the foundation of an empathic healthcare provider with a commitment to lifelong learning. Well, here’s the truth – there is no conspiracy. There is, however, a natural integration of knowledge among seemingly diverse disciplines, as well as between the liberal arts and sciences as a whole and professional program education.

Combining Knowledge with a Servant’s Heart at the United Nations

JeanJordanUnTrip-888739-edited.jpgOver the summer, Jean Angel, a Physical Therapist Assistant student, and Jordan Schmitt, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing student, were able to combine this dual emphasis on head and heart with a trip to the United Nations. Sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, the Sisters allow students from the various Mercy-tradition colleges through the country to join them in a “U.N. immersion experience,” where students accompany the Sisters as they advocate for the poor and vulnerable at the U.N. in New York City, and share strategies of advocating locally that students take home with them.

Responding to Human Suffering: Everyone’s Challenge

Since its award-winning beginnings three years ago, the Mercy College Faith and Healing Series has brought phenomenal speakers with engaging topics to the campus of Mercy College of Health Sciences four times a year. Join us as we continue this tradition, and ask your friends to come as we continue to watch it grow!

Welcome to Mercy College!

Mercy College family, 
As we head back to school to start a new Fall semester and a new academic year, I would like to extend a special welcome to our new and returning students to campus.

We hope that as you embark on your academic year that you take a few moments to learn about or reflect on the College history and the mission of the Sisters of Mercy.  Their mission is the foundation of the College as we offer education in health care focused professional programs, blended on a foundation of a general education core of liberal arts and science (LAS), and mission fulfillment (our Core Values).  I hope that you grow to realize the significant role integrating LAS and mission through service learning and leadership has on your professional studies and career.
