Beyond academic programs, Salisbury University offers something for people of all ages, from parents seeking enriching programs for their children, to local residents looking for things to do in the community, to retirees pursuing ways to keep learning.
SU is home to galleries and museums, from the SU Art Galleries on campus and in downtown Salisbury, to the Perdue Museum of Business and Entrepreneurship, and the nationally recognized Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art. We have performing ensembles, including the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra, Salisbury Pops, SU Jazz Ensemble, Salisbury and University Chorales, SU Dance Company, and Bobbi Biron Theatre Program. We also have hundreds of cultural and academic events annually that are open to the public, from lectures and readings, to exhibits to performing artists, to concerts and films.
A number of University-affiliated institutes and centers also serve the community: Delmarva Public Radio, the Center for Extended and Lifelong Learning, the Institute for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement (PACE), the Eastern Shore Regional GIS Cooperative (ESRGC), the Business, Economic and Community Development Network (BEACON), and the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), just to name a few. SU and its students, faculty and staff are engaged with the community in so many ways. Help us make more of these efforts possible!
