Mission Statement

Salisbury University is a premier comprehensive Maryland public university- offering excellent- affordable education in undergraduate liberal arts- sciences- pre-professional and professional programs- including education- nursing- social work- and business- and a limited number of applied graduate programs. Our highest purpose is to empower our students with the knowledge- skills- and core values that contribute to active citizenship- gainful employment- and life-long learning in a democratic society and interdependent world. Salisbury University cultivates and sustains a superior learning community where students- faculty- and staff are viewed as teachers- scholars- and learners- and where a commitment to excellence and openness to a broad array of ideas and perspectives are central to all aspects of University life. Our learning community is student-centered- where students are taught by professional educators in small classroom settings- where faculty serve as academic advisors- and where virtually every student has an opportunity to undertake research with a faculty mentor. We foster an environment where individuals make choices that lead to a more successful development of social- physical- occupational- emotional- and intellectual well being. The University recruits exceptional and diverse faculty- staff- and undergraduate and graduate students from across Maryland- the United States- and around the world- supporting all members of the University community as they work together to achieve institutional goals and vision. Believing that learning and service are vital components of civic life- Salisbury University actively contributes to the local Eastern Shore community and the educational- economic- cultural- and social needs of our State and nation.
