How are you living out the Mercy College values?

Submitted by Annie Devine

We are creating a video highlighting our Mercy College Values and we want to hear from you! How have you been living out the Mercy College Values this past year? We want to include your stories, thoughts, and examples. Need a refresher on our Values? Visit

You can share what our Values mean to you or how you live them out. Perhaps you've practiced the value of Excellence by perfecting your banana bread recipe this year. Maybe you've practiced the value of service by volunteering to administer vaccines. You might have seen the value of Human Dignity as you worked with patients or colleagues. You can also share what the Values mean to you if you don't have a specific example in mind. If you have a picture of yourself putting the Mercy College Values into practice, we'll take that too! You can submit your comments and thoughts at

The first 25 submissions that provide a comment for at least one Value and include their Mercy College email address will receive a $5 gift card of their choice to Amazon or Starbucks, as a thank you.

Survey responses are due by May 16, 2021.

If you have questions, please contact Annie Devine at
