Dean's Advisory Board

The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) Dean’s Advisory Board is comprised of notable alumni of Salem State and other prominent members of the Salem community, the North Shore, and greater Boston. The board meets four times annually and serves as an important external advisory body to CAS outreach, development and planning, helping to advance the many initiatives central to the mission of CAS: 

“The College of Arts and Sciences provides students a rigorous, dynamic and creative liberal arts education for personal and professional development in a diverse, local and global environment.” 

We plan to expand the board to the requisite 25 members. To that end, we are looking for potential board members committed to improving higher education in the Commonwealth and nation, and who bring energy, vision, creativity, resources, and unique approaches, all crucial elements if the College of Arts and Sciences—and Salem State University—is to grow, change and remain a vital leader in the region.
