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.

The University recruits exceptional and diverse 学院, staff, 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 learning 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, learning, 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, academic, facilities, and enrollment plans, as well as our fiscal commitments, reflect our fundamental values. In addition to these principle 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 academic integrity.
I will respect diverse groups and individuals.
I will strive to bring honor to myself and the University.
