Enhanced University Facilities

Nearly one-third of the funds raised in the campaign, more than $154 million, were designated to Mercer’s School of Medicine and have helped build new campuses and clinical sites for rural and medically underserved communities. With the addition to the medical education building in Savannah, construction of the medical complex in Columbus and new rural health clinics, the School of Medicine is well positioned to lead the state in educating physicians and health professionals who will meet the critical health care needs of rural Georgia.

For decades, Mercer has been a pioneer in undergraduate science teaching and research. The construction of the Spearman C. Godsey Science Center in Macon addressed the demand for additional science courses and research facilities created by increased enrollment and growth in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) disciplines, while the newly constructed Moye Pharmacy and Health Sciences Center in Atlanta addressed the need for additional learning, teaching and research space for the College of Pharmacy, College of Nursing and College of Health Professions as well as the School of Medicine. These state-of-the-art facilities provide dedicated space for cutting-edge research and serve as a powerful reminder of the University’s commitment to provide an innovative learning environment for our students.

The consistent success of Mercer’s sports teams is one important result of the increased investment the University has made in intercollegiate athletics. Gifts to the University’s athletics programs that support our student-athletes and contribute to athletics facilities have enabled the University to offer its students the opportunity to be part of a supportive and close-knit community while developing habits of character that will serve them well beyond their student experience.

As an out-of-state student-athlete, I didn’t know anyone when I arrived at Mercer. I knew I would find friendship with my teammates and peers, but I never thought this would happen with our donors as well. The support that athletic donors have provided over the past four years is truly unmatched! Mercer softball donors truly care about the difference they are making in the lives of students, and I have felt the impact of their support both on and off the field!
