Situated in the Midwestern city of Detroit, the University of Detroit Mercy has a long history dating back to the middle of the 19th century. In 1877, the Society of Jesus founded Detroit College, which expanded over the years and soon became known as the University of Detroit. Several years later in 1941, the Sisters of Mercy founded a similar Catholic institution of higher education, the Mercy College of Detroit. While these two entities coexisted for many years, they merged in 1990 to form the school's current incarnation as the University of Detroit Mercy - Michigan's largest Catholic university. Today, the school serves approximately 5,600 students from the Detroit area and beyond.
According to its mission statement, "the University of Detroit Mercy, a Catholic university in the Jesuit and Mercy traditions, exists to provide excellent, student-centered, undergraduate and graduate education in an urban context. A UDM education seeks to integrate the intellectual, spiritual, ethical and social development of our students."
