Students find renewed purpose in Belize

Service beyond self—in addition to a top-quality education, it’s what Mount Mercy strives to instill in all students. Life-changing experiences in the small country of Belize have opened the eyes of graduates and undergraduates alike, in a beautiful example of service beyond self in action.

“So, when are you going to go?”

2014 marked the second year MBA students traveled to Central America to help dreams come true for Belizean small businesses. Undergraduates also traveled to Belize this year for Mount Mercy’s first international service learning experience, thanks in large part to a ministry grant from the Sisters of Mercy West Midwest.
