MERCYHURST UNIVERSITY CENTER FOR ACADEMIC ENGAGEMENT
The Academic Engagement Center is a hands-on, collaborative, high-tech learning environment housing two of Mercyhurst’s signature programs – Intelligence Studies and Hospitality Management, along with the Mercyhurst Center for Applied Politics and the Evelyn Lincoln Institute for Ethics and Society. The classrooms and laboratories are outfitted with the latest technology equipment. The four-story, 31,000 square foot structure houses state-of-the-art training kitchens and banquet facilities for 160 guests.
The center is heralded as the most environmentally sustainable building yet constructed on campus. The style reinforces the campus’ historic character and compliments the image of Old Main. Construction began in the spring of 2011 and was completed for the 2012 fall term.
