SU's 任务 and 值
Salisbury University's current 任务 statement was adopted in 2014 and revised in 2019 to reflect our change in campus structure. Our 值 and the SU Promise also are important to the campus community.
Salisbury University is a premier comprehensive Maryland public university offering excellent, affordable education in undergraduate liberal arts, 科学, 业务, 护理, health 科学, social work, and education and applied master’s and doctoral programs. Our highest purpose is to empower our students with the knowledge, 技能, and core values that contribute to active citizenship, gainful employment, and life-long 学习 in a democratic society and interdependent world.
Salisbury University cultivates and sustains a superior 学习 community where students, 教师, and 工作人员 are viewed as learners, teachers/scholars, and facilitators, 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 学习 community is student-centered. Students learn from professional educators in small classroom settings, 教师 and professional 工作人员 serve as 学术 advisors, and virtually every student has an opportunity to undertake research or experiential 学习 with a 教师 mentor. Through our privately endowed 学校 and Honors College, and the College of Health and Human Services, we foster an environment where individuals prepare for career and life, including their social, 物理, occupational, emotional, and intellectual well-being.
The University recruits exceptional and diverse 教师, 工作人员, and undergraduate and graduate students from across Maryland and the United States and from around the world, supporting all members of the University community as they work together to achieve institutional goals and vision. Believing that 学习 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.
The core values of Salisbury University are excellence, student centeredness, 学习, community, civic engagement, and diversity and inclusion. 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, 学术, facilities, and enrollment plans, as well as our fiscal commitments, reflect our fundamental values. In addition to these principal values, the University embraces, through its shared governance bodies, the long-honored tradition of honesty and mutual regard that is and should be a defining characteristic of higher education.
The Salisbury University Promise
This is a statement of integrity and respect for others to which we ask all new students to commit as a way of highlighting the University’s values and expectations.
As a Salisbury University student:
I will connect what I learn to how I live.
I will demonstrate personal and 学术 integrity.
I will respect diverse groups and individuals.
I will strive to bring honor to myself and the University.
