Partner Profile
Environmental and social responsibility is an important part of Mercyhurst University's mission. We're committed to educating our students and our community about living a "greener" lifestyles to ensure a sustainable future. We encourage ongoing participation in recycling and energy conservation, offer a Sustainability Studies minor and major and provide the Mercyhurst community with multiple ways to get involved in sustainability projects and activities. For more than a decade, Mercyhurst University has demonstrated its commitment to sustainability through the start of a sustainability academic program, continued monitoring of our carbon emissions, support of renewable energy including the use of geothermal heating and cooling, and much more. We were also one of the first colleges in Pennsylvania to offset 100% of electricity through the support of national wind farms, and the first educational institution in northwest Pennsylvania to have solar panels.
