The Salisbury University story began with a state in need. In 1921, a study showed Maryland’s existing higher education infrastructure was not adequately meeting the demand for teachers in the state’s rural areas. The next year, the Maryland Legislature sought to remedy this by founding a new “normal school in one of the state’s most rural areas: the Eastern Shore.
The level of research and scholarly activity taking place here at SU rivals any such activity at more research-focused institutions. Our curriculum supports student engagement and civic responsibility, and research by SU faculty has extended the classroom by focusing on the larger community, as demonstrated by work related to health, assessment hurricane storm damage, and workforce development and entrepreneurship. We invite you to get involved with research at Salisbury University!

Located on the beautiful and historic Eastern Shore, Salisbury University’s 220 acres are a nationally recognized arboretum. The easily accessible campus includes nearly 100 buildings. The Shore’s first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified new construction project, recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council, was built at SU and 10 additional such buildings have followed in the last decade. Beyond main campus, SU's Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art on Schumaker Pond houses one of the nation’s best collections of folk art (according to USA Today); the Nanticoke River Center in nearby Riverton serves students studying the environment.
