Jane Mercer has been with the School of Public Health and, before that, with the PSU School of Community Health for more than 30 years.
Her early years at PSU began with teaching Health and Fitness courses. This evolved to include departmental academic advising and finally, becoming internship coordinator. Currently, she teaches Health Promotion Disease Prevention, advises School of Public Health undergraduate students, co-directs student interns and co-chairs the Deadline Appeals Board as well as serving on many additional committees across campus.
Throughout her work with the School of Public Health, Jane’s priority is to assist students with all needs that may arise. On a daily basis, her goal is to work with the students that she teaches and advises in order to improve their individual higher education experience.
