Community Outreach

Service has been a prized charism at Misericordia University since our formation in 1924. Students, staff, and faculty alike are known to involve themselves in projects throughout the Back Mountain area as well as abroad. Misericordia's history has a rich foundation of service to others, and has a common thread through each of our graduates. We do this by fostering a passion for social justice issues that enable our students to be advocates on behalf of those who are poor and oppressed.

Many  service related programs and ministries are done in collaboration with the Leadership Team. Learn more about Office for Mission, Ministry and Service.




McAuley Market Food Pantry: Located in the left side of Henry Student Commuter Lounge and open by appointment by calling x6495. Online ordering is also available here.

Thanksgiving Basket Project: Each year, the campus community sponsors local families with a holiday meal at Thanksgiving. We typically serve about 100 families who have been recommended by social service agencies and churches, sponsored by clubs, organizations, and individual donors.

Mercy Leaders Scholarship Program: The Mercy Leaders Program is an initiative that recognizes, trains, and supports students who are civically engaged. A very selected group of students pledge to complete 150 hours of service in on calendar year, and, in exchange for that commitment, will receive leadership, training, and support from the staff and fellow Mercy leaders, and participate in ongoing supervision and reflection activities. Students who enroll in this program and successfully complete the 200 hours of service will receive an award of $1000 to be taken off their tuition.
