In 1922, the Maryland Legislature established a commission to determine a location for a two-year teachers college on the state’s Eastern Shore. A site at Salisbury was selected and the institution opened in September 1925.


The core values of Salisbury University are excellence, student centeredness, learning, community, civic engagement, and diversity. We believe these values must be lived and experienced as integral to everyday campus life so that students make the connection between what they learn and how they live. The goals and objectives of our strategic, academic, facilities, and enrollment plans, as well as our fiscal commitments, reflect our fundamental values. 


Our learning community is student-centered, where students are taught by professional educators in small classroom settings, faculty serve as academic advisors, and virtually every student has an opportunity to undertake research or experiential learning 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.
