Our Mission

Liberal education remains the hallmark of undergraduate higher education in the United States, widely regarded as the best in the world. The Fulton School plays a vital role in the academic experience of every Salisbury University student, and its courses and programs aim to fulfill the University's mission by:

  • Empowering students with knowledge and skills vital to lifelong professional success and personal growth;
  • Maintaining a student-centered academic environment through modest class sizes and conscientious mentoring;
  • Emphasizing in each program the importance of effective research, analysis and communications skills vital to success both within the discipline and in a knowledge-based economy's work force; and
  • Fostering understanding and appreciation of the diversity of the world's cultures and traditions, also as reflected in our own society, through our community, curriculum, cultural programming and international education.
I feel especially gratified to see how our students in the arts, humanities, and social sciences grow in talent, maturity and professionalism over the course of their experience at Salisbury University.
