What if the world as we know it was negotiable? It is.

Are you passionate about health care? Then shake up the economy. Just blew out 40 candles? Go get that MBA. Frustrated with ice cream costs? Build a cow. At Mercer, we're not confined to the world as we know it - because we believe one person can change it.

I was drawn to Mercer's Educational Leadership program because the University uses the model of changing the world to teach every major. One of the things that we do here in Mercer's College of Education is transformational leadership. So if I’m going to be a leader, I cannot only change myself, but I have to change those who come behind me.
