Dear New Faculty Member:

Welcome to the Salisbury University campus community. We are pleased and honored that you have chosen to join us at an exciting time in our institution’s history. While the University is, at 89, relatively young, we have a well-established regional and national reputation, with a growing international presence for our strong academic programs and student-centered campus. Student admissions are increasingly selective and this fact contributes to our growing reputation. The new ideas, strong backgrounds, and diverse viewpoints you bring to our campus will contribute to our continued progress as A Maryland University of National Distinction.

To build on our national distinction we will be developing several initiatives this academic year, including new international partnerships, innovative STEM projects, a focus on expanding honors and our nationally competitive scholarships program, and expanding graduate education with a second doctoral program. SU is a vibrant, intellectually-charged learning community that will provide you many opportunities for professional growth and success.

One of the most important attributes of both successful students and faculty members is their eagerness to learn all sorts of information from multiple sources. Your next several days, and in fact the entire Fall term, will call upon those skills. The New Faculty Orientation Committee has put together a varied and informative program to help you successfully navigate your first year at SU. It will orient you to sources of information, what to expect, who does what, and where to find a helpful colleague. There are many wonderful opportunities on the Lower Eastern Shore beyond the campus, and we hope you’ll come to enjoy them as much as we do.

We are genuinely glad you are here and hope that you will feel the same about SU. Ours is a friendly campus, with many opportunities for us to interact informally. Welcome to Salisbury University!

Sincerely,


Janet Dudley-Eshbach
President
