Salem College, a liberal arts college for women, values its students as individuals, develops their unique potential and prepares them to change the world. Our values are learning grounded in the pursuit of excellence, community and responsibility to self and the world. Salem College can trace its roots as far back as 1766 when the Moravians, an early Protestant denomination from central Europe, established the village of Salem. Believing that women deserved an education comparable to that given men — an exceptional view in the 18th Century — the Moravians began a school for girls in 1772. Today, Salem is an intimate learning community of 1,100 women from all over the world and is one of our nation’s most distinguished private liberal arts colleges. As the oldest educational institution for women in the United States, Salem boasts a proud history of fostering independence in women. Our students have the freedom to explore who they are and who they want to be. They enjoy state-of-the-art facilities for the sciences, athletics and the performing arts; manage their campus through a dynamic Student Government Association; and participate in over 50 clubs and activities. Students also complete the Salem Signature, an innovative four-year series of courses that truly distinguishes Salem from other colleges. The Salem Signature leads students along a path of self-knowledge, community service and career preparation, ensuring that our graduates are fully equipped to excel in the world. Salems Honor Code places a high value on integrity and trust, creating a learning community where achievement is the only status symbol. Our areas of distinction include the Women in Science and Mathematics program, the Center for Women Writers, the internationally known School of Music, and the month-long January Term, during which many students complete internships or study abroad.
