Merrimack College embraces its mission to enlighten minds, engage hearts, and empower lives. Faithful to our Augustinian tradition, this mission calls us to actively engage the passion and emotion of our hearts with the discipline provided by intellect and reason.


Merrimack College's vision is to be a highly ranked, internationally respected, selective masters comprehensive Catholic college, which is residential, student-centered, professionally focused and rigorous in the liberal arts, sciences, and business.

We will advance this vision through excellence in classroom teaching and scholarship, diversity and globalization, the development of professionally oriented graduate programs, investments in faculty, the enhancement of student life and experiential learning, the expansion of athletics, and the refocusing of our values on our Catholic roots and the teachings and principles of St. Augustine.
