Founded by the Sisters of Mercy in Tarrytown for members of their order before opening to women in 1961, Mercy College has always striven to positively impact the lives of its students and the members of its community. In 1969, the college became coeducational and nonsectarian. The main campus in Dobbs Ferry expanded throughout the New York metropolitan area, operating several branch campuses in New York City and Westchester County. The mission--to make available the transformational power of a postsecondary education to motivated students--has remained strong through all the growth and change over the college's rich history. Join Mercy College professors Eric Martone and Michael Perrota as they explore Mercy College's past and present and even look to its bright future.
