Mission Statement

Georgian Court University, founded by the Sisters of Mercy of New Jersey in 1908 and sponsored by the Institute of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas since January of 2007, provides a comprehensive liberal arts education in the Roman Catholic tradition. The university has a special concern for women and is a dynamic community committed to the core values of justice, respect, integrity, service, and compassion, locally and globally.

Georgian Court University provides students with

  • A curriculum broad enough to be truly liberal, yet specialized enough to support further study and future careers;
  • An environment for the entire university community to grow through shared educational, cultural, social, and spiritual experiences; and
  • The will to translate concern for social justice into action.
