Housed on a hill nestled in Cedar Rapids’ historical Mound View neighborhood, Mount Mercy University promises students of diverse backgrounds, ages and faiths a challenging, practical education that inspires them to discover knowledge, build community and lead courageous lives. Mount Mercy offers baccalaureate and graduate education to nearly 1,900 enrolled students and uniquely blends an outstanding liberal arts education with equally outstanding professional preparation. Established on five critical concerns — earth, immigration, nonviolence, anti-racism and women — Mount Mercy’s curriculum guides students in exploring and working towards a more just, equal and peaceful world.
