Forum and Focus Groups Schedule

The President’s Advisory Committee on the Core Curriculum invites you to participate in one of our upcoming open forums or focus groups about the creation of a new core curriculum at Salem State.

We have organized a variety of public events and small private focus groups to invite students, faculty, administrators, staff, alumni, and other members of the SSU community to collaborate on this exciting new project that will transform the undergraduate experience at Salem State. Please join us at one of these events to share your ideas for a new core curriculum.
