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.

Mercer accepts folks as they are and helps them grow into compassionate global leaders. I have so much to improve upon and grow, and I am grateful to all the individuals at Mercer who helped me get to the point I’m at.

Mercer has instilled in me high standards of ethics in research, counseling, and humanity. With faculty support and mentorship, I feel equipped to take on projects that I had only dreamed of prior to joining Mercer. I must honor my determination and dedication to be the best version of myself, as a human being and a counselor too.
