Service is at Our Core

Mercy Core Value of Service: We joyfully extend our energy and resources on behalf of the poor, sick and uneducated working to relieve misery and address its causes where possible.

The purpose of this course is to provide students with knowledge and experience that will help them become empathetic leaders.
