Supporting a 21st-Century Vision for Student Success

A meaningful college experience encompasses more than classroom learning. For our students to realize their potential, they need access to tools that replicate real-world working environments, such as high-quality lab equipment and patient care simulations. Their college experience should incorporate extra-curricular programs that cultivate their creativity and leadership skills as well as their intellect, such as student organizations and travel programs. They need an institution that can evolve its course offerings in response to changes in our society and our world. All of these initiatives are fueled by unrestricted giving—a critical dimension of the campaign that will allow Salem State to deliver flexible programming, address unforeseen needs, and support a 21st-century vision for student success.

Salem State offers specialized resources for students who need help—both academically and financially—within the Student Navigation Center and the Center for Academic Excellence.

The Student Navigation Center is there to help students with everything from student billing to registration, giving students support throughout their journey at Salem State. Whether students have a question about financial aid, student accounts, or their academic record, the Student Navigation Center can help.

The Center for Academic Excellence helps students achieve academic success by providing advising, tutoring, mentoring, supplemental instruction, reading and test-taking strategies, and collaborating with other departments to ensure that students have the appropriate academic supports to be successful at Salem State.
