Exceptional students, a highly regarded faculty, and dynamic administration have made Salisbury University "A Maryland University of National Distinction."

Nationally recognized for academic excellence, Salisbury University (SU) has a creative curriculum emphasizing undergraduate research, study abroad, professional internships, and community engagement. Supporting entrepreneurship for some three decades, SU offers more than $300,000 in competitive grants annually to students and others to pursue new ideas, products, and services. SU also is one of the nation’s top producers of Fulbright scholars, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Located on the historic Eastern Shore, the beautiful 182-acre campus is home to 8,700 students from 37 states and 67 nations. All four of its schools are endowed, a rarity among public institutions. Just opened is the Guerrieri Academic Commons, a hub for learning and research anchored by a state-of-the-art university library. The new Sea Gull Stadium is home to SU’s NCAA Division III athletics teams, winners of 19 national championships. Consistently ranked among the nation’s top colleges by The Princeton Review and U.S. News & World Report, Salisbury also is cited as a “best value” by Kiplinger’s, Washington Monthly, Forbes, and Money magazines.
