The legacy of University of Detroit Mercy began over 139 years ago. Our founders, the Society of Jesus and the Religious Sisters of Mercy, have always believed in the power of education to change people and, through them, the world. To that end, each order began colleges to foster the intellectual, social, spiritual and moral development of individuals.
University of Detroit Mercy, a Catholic university in the Jesuit and Mercy traditions, exists to provide excellent student-centered undergraduate and graduate education in an urban context. A Detroit Mercy education seeks to integrate the intellectual, spiritual, ethical and social development of our students.
Our Career Education Center offers comprehensive career planning and placement services to students and graduates. The University also provides a nationally-recognized cooperative education program that places undergraduate students each year in career-related salaried positions. Our co-op program is the third oldest continuous program in the country, and the oldest program in Michigan. It is available to students in all programs, and is required in Architecture, Engineering and 5-year BSBA/MBA programs.
