Neighborhood Connections

Welcome neighbor! Salem State has been an integral part of the South Salem neighborhood for more than 115 years, and of the greater Salem community for over 150 years. We deeply value our relationships with our neighbors, the city of Salem, the greater North Shore, and beyond.

We take great pride in our community connections, which are based on open communication and collaboration.
