Leadership and Involvement

Salem State residence halls offer a variety of leadership positions for you to consider while living on campus. Student leadership and involvement contribute to a strong and vibrant residence hall community, and there is no better way to make a difference in your community while meeting new friends. Residence Life is committed to helping students develop their own potential to be leaders, to be globally minded, and to be productive and contributing members of society. We believe in fostering leaders who possess an inclusive perspective, in an effort to create social change toward a respectful, diverse society.
