NOW for Tomorrow | The Campaign for Misericordia University


As I settle into my role as president for the 2020-21 academic year, I am immediately struck by the generosity of spirit and engagement that permeates Misericordia University. Pathways to exceptionally bright academic careers and promising futures are being forged for students by generous benefactors, while faculty and staff continue to transition their collective aspiration for advanced science education and research from broad vision to focused reality.

By committing your generosity to Now for Tomorrow: The Campaign for Misericordia University – the most challenging undertaking in the University’s 96-year history – you are ensuring students for generations to come have access to technology-savvy learning and research, and intellectual collaboration and mentorship. You are providing Misericordia and her students with stability for the future, and the resources to respond to unanticipated needs in support of 21st-century learning and discovery-based education.

What a wonderful journey you have been on. I welcome the opportunity to join each of you in supporting and indeed living the core values of Mercy, Service, Justice and Hospitality, and building upon the University’s distinct legacy of servant-leadership – Now for Tomorrow.
