From Salem College

Salem has educated aspiring leaders to change the world since 1772, when it was founded on the revolutionary premise that men are not the only ones who deserve to be educated and lead. 250 years later, Salem is again revolutionary as the nation's only liberal arts college focused on training future leaders in health. A nationally-ranked liberal arts college in one of America's best college cities, Salem's IMPACT curriculum and innovative health-focused programs blend leadership training with science, design, humanities, ethics, and art ... all the tools to allow Salem graduates to become innovative problem solvers who make their communities and the world a better, healthier, more equitable place. Our website and social media channels will guide you through the Salem experience, and our office of admission is here to welcome you to our beautiful and historic campus, where you will meet faculty and students, visit a residence hall, and more.
