Salem State's mission is to provide a high quality, student-centred education that prepares a diverse community of learners to contribute responsibly and creatively to a global society, and serve as a resource to advance the region's cultural, social and economic development. Salem State University will be a premier teaching university that engages students in an inspiring transformational educational experience.10,000 undergraduate and graduate students, 352 full-time faculty and a large and diverse staff call their 5-campus university in the historic seacoast town of Salem, Massachusetts, home. Here’s just some of what they have to say about life on—and off—campus. With the freedom to choose their own path and find their place in the world, they’re looking for adventure and knowledge—and writing the next chapters of their unique and individual stories. They’re risk takers, artists, and innovative thinkers, and they’re investing in ourselves so they can help others. They’re all about community service here. Studying at the most diverse state university in Massachusetts gives them access to people from all over the country and all over the world. They love the way their individual differences open their eyes and give them wider perspectives. Their faculty are world class, and make learning fun and exciting even as they push them to think in new ways. Best of all, though, they are friendly, passionate about their subjects, and here for them when they need them. They also love the small, intimate classes.
