University of Detroit

University of Detroit Mercy is the only university in the world that combines the centuries-old commitment to education of the Society of Jesus and the Religious Sisters of Mercy. The two charisms, rooted in the Gospel, strengthen and support each other in their vision of building competent, compassionate leaders ready to serve in a vulnerable world. Our students learn compassion and respect for all voices, especially those that are often muted. Moral and ethical issues are considered alongside academic and professional disciplines. Our students understand that the Mercy and Jesuit charisms demand that they put their education to work in service of others. Collaboration across programs provides students a local and global vision, helping them understand the difference they can make in their field and the world.
