Salem Through My Eyes
Salem is a place where you feel immediately welcomed into the community. When someone asks you how you are doing, they really want to know, and they really care about your well-being. There is a deep commitment at Salem to creating a supportive space, where everyone is safe to curiously engage with topics across academic disciplines.
