Girls Innovation Academy

Girls Innovation Academy @ SU is for girls entering sixth, seventh or eighth grade in Fall 2017. Participants learn age-appropriate computer coding, web design, media tools and communication software to empower participants to solve problems and expand their technology skills. GIA enhances young women’s competence and confidence through engaging, applied projects on real community issues. Plus, it’s fun!

Here's a look back at GIA at SU 2017!



Girls Innovation Academy @ SU focuses on:

  • Leadership & Communication
  • Innovation & Technology and
  • Sustainability & Civic Engagement



  • The three-week summer program is held at Salisbury University, an award-winning “green” campus.
  • The girls will explore the many sustainability initiatives of SU and their relationship to problem-solving. 
  • Each week the group will travel to off-campus sites to learn about technology in action – including NASA and high-tech businesses.
  • The girls will work on a sustainability project over the summer, utilizing their newly developed leadership and computer skills.
  • The culmination is a lunch-time presentation on campus and a poster-session at the downtown Salisbury Third Friday.

PRESTO (Performing Arts Education Outreach at Salisbury University)

PRESTO studentsDo you or your child want to learn how to play the piano or cello? Enhance singing skills? Become a better actor? Then PRESTO is for you! PRESTO is the performing arts education outreach program at Salisbury University. PRESTO offers quality instruction to students of all ages, levels and abilities in the Salisbury community and surrounding areas. It is housed in Fulton Hall, where participating students have the opportunity to access its facilities, faculty expertise and students. Individual lessons are offered for strings (violin, viola, cello and bass), piano, voice, guitar, most orchestral and band instruments, theatre, and musical theatre. Group lessons are in Suzuki violin, theatre and musical theatre. PRESTO is perfect solution for those who, when asked if they play an instrument, say “No, but I always wanted to.” Now is the time to say instead, “Yes, I am learning.”


PRESTO Plus - Adult Group Piano for Pleasure Classes

PRESTO Plus is a group piano class designed for adults who want to learn to play the piano for fun! No pressure to perform or excel, just learning piano for the joy of playing! You don't need a background in music, this class starts from the very beginning!

Dr. Nan Richerson, a Salisbury University piano faculty member, teaches both classes. She enjoys working with adults, and has developed Recreational Music Making (RMM) programs for adults in Louisiana, Kentucky, and Maryland. 

Classes meet on SU's campus in Fulton Hall, Room 234. This room is equipped with a piano lab, and has 10 digital pianos. Each piano has a headset with earphones and a microphone that is connected to a conferencing system. This enables students to hear the instructor's voice and piano in addition to their individual piano (so students do not hear one another playing!). The conferencing system fosters a relaxed, stress-free learning environment that offers privacy in the midst of a group setting. 

Spring Session begins in January, registration opening soon!
