Telling the Peirce story and the power to transform lives

The big thing that differentiates Peirce from other schools is our passion and our people – the students, alumni, faculty, and staff truly make Peirce a unique place to earn a bachelor’s degree. Most of our students are working adults (average age is 35) who are already juggling a job and maybe supporting a family. At Peirce we understand the challenges adult learners face and we work hard to provide a supportive environment that meets the unique needs of non-traditional students.

Peirce has changed a lot during the 146 years we’ve provided higher education to Philadelphians, but one thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment and passion to help non-traditional students transform their lives by providing a supportive environment as they obtain career-related degrees.

While Peirce has grown and expanded its degree offerings, many people still perceive the College as it was many years ago. It’s therefore important to tell the complete Peirce story. We want to make sure everyone in the region understands who we are, what we do, how we do it, and why Peirce has the power to transform lives.

The result? A video that tells the Peirce story, straight from the mouths and minds of our students, alumni, faculty, and staff. These are the very people who make this such a special place to learn and grow, so who better to tell our story.

Please take a moment to watch and learn how Peirce puts students on the path to degree completion, a more satisfying career, and a brighter future.
