Misericordia University is Luzerne County’s oldest four-year institution of higher education. In recognition of its storied history (1924-2014) and bold future, the University is celebrating its 90th anniversary with a slate of events that reflect upon and honor the past nine decades, while also looking toward the future.

Misericordia began as an intimate, all-women’s college that has grown to become a regionally acclaimed and nationally recognized University that offers bachelor, master and doctoral degrees to men and women in 34 academic programs.
