2010 Gathering of Scholars April 12, 2011 Mercy Heritage Room 4 p.m.
The simplest and most practical lesson I know … is to be good today, but better tomorrow. Sister Catherine McAuley Letter to de Sales White Feb. 28, 1841
What Sister Catherine McAuley suggested was a life pursuit, a purposeful action that moves us to betterment, betterment of world and self. And in concert with such action is the recognition that change is not only possible, but also expected. We move forward, driven by curiosity and the possibility of discovery. Scholarship at Mercyhurst College is a measured melding of exploration, application and dissemination, fueled by curiosity and discovery. We also ask our peers and colleagues to critique our works. At Mercyhurst College, students and faculty engage in systematic and creative works designed to move academic disciplines forward and to take academic disciplines deeper. At Mercyhurst College, we embrace scholarship because it allows us to confront the unknown simply for the sake of the confrontation. As a community of scholars, we celebrate the accomplishments of our colleagues. We celebrate the diversity of disciplines recognized on the national and international stage. We congratulate our friends in their never-ending pursuit of what Robert Pirsig calls the “dynamic quality.”
