Salem State College is already a university in all but official title offering more than enough degree programs and post graduate degree programs.
Salem State graduates and even more thousands of Salem State Master’s Degree graduates are the foundation of the North Shore business, academic and institutional community.
In addition to the graduates who populate our business, academic, government and non-profit world, there is also the enormous positive economic, academic and cultural impact the Salem State has on the entire North Shore. This will only improve with University status.
Salem State Business School in particular is an economic engine driving the North Shore business community. University status will allow it to continue its tremendous growth and thus expand the enormous talent pool that provides to the North Shore business community.
More than 80 percent of Salem State graduates stay in this region and in Massachusetts. This means they are vested here and that they will continue to provide the talent necessary for companies to grow and prosper.
University status opens up private resources and investments in academic research programs and doctoral degree programs, adding to the rich academic and cultural fabric that already exists.
University status will improve the image of the Massachusetts public higher education system as it competes nationally and globally.
