Mission Statement

The Salem College Athletics Department believes that intercollegiate athletics is an integral component of a liberal arts education and that the student-athlete's academic experience is enhanced by participation in the competitive environment of intercollegiate athletics. The Salem College Athletic Department strives for academic and athletic excellence through the establishment and maintenance of an environment that values its students as individuals, develops their unique potential, and prepares them to change the world.  In pursuit of athletic excellence athletics provide the student-athlete the opportunity for self-discovery and the development of principles of discipline, competition, sportsmanship, and ethical conduct; they also provide an environment that is respectful, open, and honest.  To facilitate this philosophy Salem College is a member of the NCAA and participates under its Division III guidelines.
