Commitment to Faculty

Consider a gift to faculty

Salem State faculty members make a concerted effort to know their students—and not just by name. They genuinely care about students’ interests and goals and regularly go the extra mile to promote student success—whether by extending office hours, facilitating a directed study or helping students find strategies for balancing the demands of school and work. Strengthened by their professors’ investments, students engage in their studies more deeply, explore their interests more broadly and develop greater confidence in their abilities. To say that Salem State professors have a life-changing impact on students is not hyperbole; more than two-thirds of our alumni credit a specific faculty member with setting them up for professional success. Our culture of relationship-based learning is a cornerstone of the Salem State University experience.
