Master's candidates walk across the stage

For the first time in the institution’s more than 80-year history, Mount Mercy conferred graduate degrees upon candidates during Commencement 2010.

In all, more than 400 students graduated last May. Of those, 32 held the distinction of having earned a Master of Business Administration or a Master of Arts in Education. A special graduate degree hooding ceremony took place on May 21 to mark their accomplishments.

“Mount Mercy has seen tremendous success in our graduate programs,” says Dean of Graduate Programs Melody Graham, Ph.D. “With the advent of two additional programs, we look forward to even more growth and success as the University continues to serve as a progressive leader in the community.”
