Mercer University Creating a Pipeline of Talent in Henry
The metro Atlanta area, and particularly Henry County, hosts a multitude of higher education opportunities for lifelong learning. One of the institutions that is helping to provide a continuous pipeline of talent in Henry County is Mercer University, one of the nation’s top private colleges.
At Mercer University’s Regional Academic Center in Henry County, everyone majors in changing the world. Programs are designed with the working adult student in mind, by offering evening and weekend classes. More than 400 working adults pursue graduate degrees through the Stetson School of Business and Economics and undergraduate and graduate degrees through the Tift College of Education, and undergraduate degrees through Penfield College. The modern 30,000-square-foot Center opened its doors in 2003 and has continued to expand its course offerings to meet the needs of the community.
