Program Vision:

Program Mission: The Organizational Leadership major prepares students to become exemplary leaders and scholars who exercise leadership in service to others. Our goals are to challenge students to synthesize foundational and contemporary scholarship with insights from our service-oriented, ethically based heritage. We emphasize the 'scientific-practitioner' model in which leadership strategies are learned through applied practice.

Institutional Mission: Consistent with its Catholic identity and Mercy heritage, Mercyhurst University educates women and men in a culture where faith and reason flourish together, where the beauty and power of the liberal arts combine with an appreciation for the dignity of work and a commitment to serving others. Confident in the strength of its student-faculty bonds, the university community is inspired by the image of students whose choices, in life and work, will enable them to realize the human and spiritual values embedded in everyday realities and to exercise leadership in service toward a just world.
