The division also supports our students by offering health and counseling services, career services, community service and worship experiences, and a variety of leadership opportunities. The division celebrates the diversity of those who make up the Mercyhurst community. Live to learn, learn to live.
The Student Handbook
In addition to this catalog, the University publishes the Student Handbook. The Handbook is written to provide students with an understanding of the culture and community of Mercyhurst University as well as to provide behavioral standards and consequences for misbehavior. Included in the Handbook is information on various university departments and offices, the Student Conduct Code, residential policies, etc. Students are responsible for the information contained in the Handbook and for seeking clarification of that information as needed. The Handbook is available to all students on the University’s web site and can be accessed on-line at: http://handbook. mercyhurst.edu
