President Gamble at the site of this summer’s front entrance renovation project

Dear alumni and friends of Mercyhurst, Mercyhurst continues to buck the trends in higher education. While many colleges and universities have seen the number of alumni donations drop, their enrollments shrink and their total fundraising decline, Mercyhurst continues to grow in all these important areas. During the 2010 fiscal year, our number of alumni donors grew by 450, which translates into an increase of 2.5% in alumni participation. This increase pushed Mercyhurst over the 20% participation mark for the first time since 2004. Last year, Mercyhurst set a record when the total enrollment on all campuses surpassed the 4,000 mark. This year we will again enroll more than 4,000 students on our three campuses. Fundraising cash coming into Mercyhurst exceeded $4 million for only the second time in history and total new business in fundraising exceeded $8 million for the first time. During Homecoming Weekend in fall 2009, we announced an ambitious capital campaign, the Engage, Enrich, Envision Campaign, with a $50 million goal broken into three phases. The goal of Phase I is $13 million and, as I write this letter, we already have $12.5 million toward that goal. We had hoped to finish Phase I by September of 2011, but it looks as though we may complete it a year early. This momentum is very exciting as we look to break ground on a new academic building to house our intelligence studies and business programs, as well as the Evelyn Lincoln Institute for Ethics and Society and the yet-to-be-named Center for Applied Politics.

As you will see on the following pages, your gifts this year changed the lives of Mercyhurst students and faculty. We have been able to increase the number of students who are able to do research alongside faculty during the year and throughout the summer. We have been able to upgrade facilities for fashion merchandising, sportsmedicine, nursing and forensics this year thanks to your generosity. We have also been able to expand programming for our Asperger’s students and for our students studying overseas. The entrance to the college is undergoing a major facelift with new walkways and the addition of 70 new trees. None of this would have been possible without your generous support. It is an exciting time to be president of Mercyhurst College. I am proud of all the employees who work diligently every day to provide a world-class education to more than 4,000 students. I want to personally thank you one more time for your belief in Mercyhurst and your ongoing support of our mission to educate women and men in a culture where faith and reason flourish together. Remember, though the gatehouses may look a little different the next time you come to campus, the gates are always open. Sincerely,


The year in review

The 2009-10 fiscal year proved to be another successful fundraising year for Mercyhurst College.

Alumni participation rose for the third consecutive year to 20.46% and 647 new alumni donors gave in 2009-10, the best year for new donor participation in the college’s history. Other notable accomplishments in 2009-10 include: • Thanks to the commitment of our athletics department, 19 teams exceeded the general alumni participation rate and athletic alumni participation rose from 13.7% to 24.6%. • Graduates of the last decade significantly increased their participation rate from 6.8% to 12.5%, with all classes from 2000 to 2010 meeting or exceeding their participation goals. • The classes of 1930-1969, the graduates

Mercyhurst honors supporters at O’Neil Society celebration Christ the King Chapel and its foyer – built with gifts from some of Mercyhurst College’s earliest benefactors – provided the setting for the inaugural celebration honoring members of the O’Neil Society on Nov. 14, 2009. The society is named for Orva and James O’Neil, whose gifts to the college during the 1930s funded not only Christ the King Chapel, but also the adjoining Queen’s Chapel and the four-story O’Neil Tower in which the foyer is located. Alumni and friends of the college who have arranged planned gifts to Mercyhurst are recognized with O’Neil Society membership. Forty members attended the event, which began with a Liturgy of Thanksgiving celebrated in the chapel against the magnificent mural backdrop depicting both Christ the King and the mission of the Sisters of Mercy. Brunch followed in the Chapel Foyer. Special recognition was provided for alumnae Barbara Chambers ’60, Mary Katherine (Kathy) Murray ’77 and Eileen Zinchiak ’80. They received framed prints of “Springtime at Mercyhurst College,” a painting by Bethany Ann Krowsoski ’07 ’09 that depicts the magnolia tree outside the chapel. President Dr. Thomas J. Gamble expressed gratitude to the women for their consistent and continued support to keep the Mercy spirit, traditions, values and vision alive at Mercyhurst. The list includes friends whose planned giving is known to the college and who have consented to be included; others have chosen to remain anonymous. For information on making a planned gift to Mercyhurst, contact Dave Livingston at (814) 824-2241 or dlivingston@mercyhurst.edu.

FRIENDS OF MOTHER BORGIA EGAN

Longtime donors honored as Friends of Mother Borgia Standing at the gates of Mercyhurst College, it’s hard to imagine that at one time the campus was farmland. In early 1926, Mercyhurst existed only as an idea in the mind of Mother Borgia Egan. With considerable determination and hard work, Mother Borgia and the Sisters of Mercy realized their dream and created a college for women in Erie, Pa. It opened in September 1926 with 19 freshmen and four sophomores. In the 84 years since, gifts from generous alumni and other friends have enabled the college to grow into a significant presence in higher education, while remaining true to the vision of its founders. In honor of the remarkable woman who oversaw the establishment of Mercyhurst College, The Friends of Mother Borgia Egan Society was created this year to recognize a special group of donors who have made annual contributions to the college for 20 consecutive years or more. Mercyhurst is proud to salute this group of more than 160 longstanding donors.

Donors get ‘gift of dance’ at appreciation event Dr. and Mrs. Thomas J. Gamble welcomed more than 160 guests to the college’s annual Donor Appreciation Day event on Feb. 6. Both longtime supporters and students who have benefitted from their generosity attended a performance by the Mercyhurst Dancers at the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center. “Raw Edges,” staged during winter term each year, showcases innovative works by emerging choreographers in genres including modern, jazz, classical and contemporary ballet. Prior to the performance, President Gamble gave special recognition to Margaret McMahon, a 1937 Mercyhurst graduate, for both her many years of consistent support to Mercyhurst and her longstanding membership in the college’s O’Neil Society. He presented her with a framed print of “Springtime at Mercyhurst College,” created by alumna Bethany Krowsoski . A reception followed in Cummings Art Gallery.

Remembering Dr. Helen Mullen

Mercyhurst College lost a veteran trustee and a former academic dean with the death of Dr. Helen Fabian Mullen on Feb. 8, 2010. The college and the Sisters of Mercy also lost one of their best friends and most loyal supporters. After graduating from Mercyhurst in 1947, Mullen earned both a master’s degree and a doctorate in curriculum from the University of Pittsburgh and went on to a distinguished career in higher education. She was a senior administrator for 28 years at Robert Morris University, serving as dean of enrollment and as dean of the School of Continuing Education and Executive Studies. Following her retirement in 1993, she returned to her alma mater, where she was academic dean at the Erie campus, dean of the McAuley Division, and assistant dean of students. Since Robert Morris started out as a junior college, she had a special understanding of two-year programs that she put to use as the first academic dean at Mercyhurst North East. Mullen served on the Mercyhurst board of trustees for nearly 20 years, sharing her knowledge of higher education with the Committee on Academic Affairs, her student advocacy with the Committee on Student Life, and her love of the Sisters of Mercy with the Committee on Mission. The college will miss her wisdom and her insights.

Trustee gifts fund first endowed Mercy chair The generous support of two Mercyhurst College trustees – William C. Sennett, immediate past chair, and the late Charles A. Dailey Jr. – has created an endowed chair at Mercyhurst. President Dr. Thomas J. Gamble announced that Dr. Mary Hembrow Snyder has been appointed the Endowed Chair in Mercy and Catholic Studies, and described her as “a dedicated teacher, scholar and administrator whose passion for the charism of the Sisters of Mercy, for theological studies, and for the mission of Mercyhurst College has permeated her life.” Snyder, a member of the college’s religious studies faculty for more than 23 years, will also direct the newly formed Center for Mercy and Catholic Studies. The center will focus on the five critical concerns of the Sisters of Mercy: the economically poor (especially women and children), immigrants, the environment, racism and nonviolence. The center will also focus attention on the rich Catholic intellectual tradition and collaborate with Erie’s Roman Catholic Diocese in a variety of educational efforts. On Oct. 7, 2010, the center will launch an annual lecture series when it presents Dr. Terrence Tilley, Avery Cardinal Dulles SJ Professor of Catholic Theology at Fordham University. Tilley, a former president of the Catholic Theological Society of America, will discuss “The Liberal Arts, the Catholic Intellectual Tradition, and the Search for Truth.” His talk, at 7:30 p.m. in Mercyhurst’s Walker Recital Hall, is free and open to the public.

A message from the Advancement Office

After settling into Egan Hall last summer, it was off to the races. Though the year went fast, we packed a great deal into FY 2010: announcing the Engage. Enrich. Envision. campaign; opening Warde Hall; taking our first alumni trip to Ireland in more than a decade; and hosting our first Reunion Weekend. None of this would have been possible without our excellent team. As the year came to an end, we had to say our goodbyes to Carrie Bach ’00, who returns to working for PA Representative John Evans. Carrie did excellent work while she was here and she will be missed. We are pleased to announce that Ryan Palm ’07 has joined the advancement team. We have pulled together in these pages only some of the many great stories that made for another record-breaking year. Of many accomplishments, we are most proud that we were able to engage more of our alumni. Seeing the alumni participation rate rise to almost 20.5% was a great way to cap off an excellent year. Every gift, no matter the size, makes it possible for us to improve the lives of our current students. Over the last 12 months, we traveled to dozens of cities to re-energize our alumni and remind them of what a great opportunity Mercyhurst offers for the next generation. We saw many of you when we were traveling around the country. If we did not get to you this year and you would like to see the alumni road show arrive in your town, please drop me a line and we will do our best to set something up in the coming year.

The best part of this job is hearing the stories from our alumni about what made their Mercyhurst experiences transformational. These stories range from stealing the Big Boy to getting caught by the Sisters making popcorn in Egan to the way a year in Russia as a foreign exchange student changed a life. These stories inspire us and we are grateful for your willingness to share them. When I was on Dublin’s Baggot Street in June with an alumni group, I found myself wondering what Mother Catherine McAuley would think of our growing college on the hill. I am confident Mother McAuley, Mother Borgia Egan and Sister Carolyn Herrmann would be proud of what we have made of their dream. You are a major part of keeping that dream alive and growing. Thank you again. We wish you a wonderful end to your summer and hope that you will join us on campus for Homecoming or Reunion Weekend – or both – this year. Be well,

David Livingston, Ph.D.
