A forward-thinking university that supports diversity and academic excellence, Georgian Court serves over 3,000 students of all faiths and backgrounds in a residential Women's College and a coeducational University College with undergraduate and graduate programs. The decision to purchase renewable power supports the mission of the university and is a part of the university’s commitment to sustainability. “One of the five Mercy critical concerns is ‘to reverence earth and work more effectively toward the sustainability of life and toward universal recognition of the fundamental right to water.’ It is our obligation to continue to look for ways to be good stewards of the Earth.
