Mercer University is one of America’s oldest and most distinctive institutions of higher learning, offering rigorous programs that span the undergraduate liberal arts to doctoral level degrees.

With more than 8,500 students enrolled in 12 schools and colleges on campuses in Macon, Atlanta and Savannah; three medical school sites in Macon, Savannah and Columbus; and at three Regional Academic Centers around the state, Mercer is consistently ranked among the nation's leading institutions by such publications as U.S. News & World Report, which recently named Mercer the No. 1 Best Value in the South. Our more than 80,000 alumni are making important contributions to their professions and communities throughout Georgia, the Southeast, and the world.

While offering a breadth of programs found at much larger universities, Mercer maintains an intimate, student-focused culture more characteristic of smaller liberal arts colleges. Mercer’s uniqueness is found in the way the University integrates five defining components of its mission: liberal learning, professional knowledge, discovery, service to humanity, and community.
