Service is an important part of the Misericordia culture. We take our cue from our founders, the Sisters of Mercy, who strive to make the world a better place for others. You will have options to get involved in service in many ways. Many campus clubs and organizations do service projects and have a blast doing them. Our Service Leadership Center works with faculty to develop "service learning" courses. You'll have a community service component built right in to a course you’re taking.
Campus Ministry at Misericordia University is centered on people caring about each other. The beliefs and attitudes of its members reflect positively and leave lasting impressions on the entire university community. Students of all faiths serve as coordinators of the ministries and are empowered to take leadership roles in the community on campus. In keeping with the university's Mission and tradition, all of the programs sponsored through Campus Ministry directly correlate and express the founding Sisters' values and attitudes of mercy, service, justice, and hospitality.
In providing service to others, there are many avenues for MU students including: Adopt a Grandparent, College Kids, Habitat for Humanity, and International Service Trips. In addition to service oriented clubs on campus like Circle K, every SGA charted club performs some type of service during each semester.
There are also programs designed for personal growth and education. Some of the opportunities include retreats, spring break service trips and there’s even a Service House. This house enables students to live in an off-campus house and work on service projects together.
