Mount Mercy University recognizes that hate is not a thing of the past—acts of hate occur not only across the world but also right here on campus. Accordingly, MMU employees and students stand united against hate and reaffirm our Mercy values of compassion and hospitality. Just because we differ from one another does not give us the right to express hate toward one another. Our differences are welcome; hate is not.
