The mission of Misericordia University's Office of Service-Learning is to engage students in the development of lifelong civic responsibility through academic coursework. The university believes that through service engagement, students will gain the knowledge, skills and commitment to make a significant impact on the communities in which they live. The goal is to not just engage students in learning through service but to instill a lifelong commitment to mercy, service and justice. Further, Misericordia University believes that the combination of strong academics, career development and community service leadership will foster the development of citizens who will take leadership roles in creating communities where mercy and justice prevail.

Service-Learning Goals:

  • Support the incorporation of Service-Learning service opportunities into courses.
  • Provide service-learning experiences supportive of the university's mission that connect students with their communities.
  • Foster a commitment to mercy, service and justice.
  • Develop strong community partnerships between the University and within the community.
