About Mercer University

Mercer University was founded in 1833 in Penfield by Georgia Baptists. The school, under the leadership of Baptist minister and spiritual father Adiel Sherwood, was named for Jesse Mercer, a prominent Baptist leader and the first chair of the Mercer Board of Trustees. Mercer University's mission is to teach, to learn, to create, to discover, to inspire, to empower and to serve. In fulfilling this mission, the University supports undergraduate, graduate, and professional learning as well as basic research and its application in service to others. As a university committed to excellence and innovation, Mercer challenges members of its community to meet and exceed high standards in their teaching, learning, research, scholarship and service. Central to the Mercer experience is an education that uniquely prepares students to lead virtuous, meaningful and responsible lives and encourages a thoughtful examination of ethical and moral choices.

From its humble beginnings in Penfield, Mercer today is a dynamic and comprehensive center of undergraduate, graduate and professional education. The University has more than 8,300 students, 12 schools and colleges – liberal arts, law, pharmacy, medicine, health professions, business, engineering, education, theology, music, nursing and continuing and professional studies, major campuses in Macon, Atlanta and Savannah, three regional academic centers around the state, a university press, two teaching hospitals, educational partnerships with Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex in Warner Robins and Piedmont Healthcare in Atlanta, an engineering research center in Warner Robins, a performing arts center in Macon, and a NCAA Division I athletic program. Mercer is one of the nation’s very few universities that successfully combines the intimate environment and personal attention of a small liberal arts college with the academic resources of a major research university. Offering undergraduate and graduate programs in business, education, engineering, liberal arts, music and nursing, as well as professional programs in health sciences, law and theology, Mercer is unique among private universities in America.

Mercer University offers programs on three major campuses in Macon, Atlanta and Savannah, and at three Regional Academic Centers in suburban Atlanta. In addition, the University operates the Mercer Engineering Research Center in Warner Robins. Macon has served as Mercer’s home since 1871, when the institution moved from its original campus in Penfield, Georgia. The beautiful, historic Macon campus houses the College of Liberal Arts, School of Medicine, School of Engineering, Stetson School of Business and Economics, Tift College of Education and Townsend School of Music, along with programs for working adults through Penfield College. The Walter F. George School of Law is located one mile away on Coleman Hill overlooking downtown Macon. The city of 90,000 serves as the educational, medical, cultural and commercial hub of Central Georgia.
