Why Mercer

Making A Genuine Difference

We hold ourselves to a different set of standards – incorporating a higher sense of purpose to everything we do. This takes us beyond campus walls to Vietnam, Botswana or wherever we are needed.

The latest news and features

My laboratory experience at Mercer took a naïve high schooler and transformed him into an aspiring academic. … It was the first time I ever saw innovation in action. No experience is comparable to that achievement, that feeling that I was contributing to something meaningful and had created something new.
