Dare to be different at Salem College.

We’re a cozy community of students, faculty, and staff right in the middle of a working 18th century village. We’re a forward-thinking liberal arts institution with a real history – an urban residential campus with a twist. Salem was founded in 1772 on the revolutionary idea that young women deserved the same level of education given to young men. Today, 245 years later - in 2017, it remains a revolutionary idea. Today, we empower our students not just as women, but as human beings. We empower them to be curious, be creative, be responsible, be involved, be discerning, be seen, be heard, be needed, be known. 

This place has purpose. Discover yours.
