60 Years of Mercy Education

1958-2018: Maria Celebrates 60 Years

On April 25, 1958, on behalf of the New York State Education Department, the Board of Regents granted a charter to found Maria College. This year is a celebratory milestone as we look back on how Maria has evolved over 60-years providing opportunity education in high demand careers to all who can benefit.

The Sisters of Mercy founding principles continue to move us forward and core to our culture are these mission and values. We are marking our 60th year anniversary with events to be announced and held throughout the year celebrating the past and looking to the future. Mercy Week will be dedicated to marking and celebrating this important place in Maria’s history.

Some of the activities include an anniversary issue of the Maria Magazine, a special annual fund campaign (60 Days of Giving), and a call for the Maria community to submit photos and memories for a 60th scrapbook (fill out form below). Stay tuned to your email for more updates on Maria’s 60th celebration!
