Salem State University Reports

All funds budgeting is a comprehensive financial framework structured to present an enterprise-wide view of the budget, incorporating all operating funds into the official university budget.

For more than 160 years, Salem State University has been a vital part of the economic, intellectual and cultural vibrancy of Salem, the North Shore and all of Massachusetts. This economic impact study aims to quantify the significance of the activities of the university and the many contributions of Salem State's students, alumni faculty, and staff.

The primary driver of effective higher education performance measurement systems is a database that enables time-efficient and reliable linear data trending for planning, policy development, and performance assessment.

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act or Clery Act, signed in 1990, is a federal statute codified at 20 U.S.C. § 1092(f), with implementing regulations in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations at 34 CFR 668.46.

The Clery Act requires all colleges and universities that participate in federal financial aid programs to keep and disclose information about crime on and near their respective campuses.

The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson’s, and U.S. News & World Report. The combined goal of this collaboration is to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student’s transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers.

The purpose of this document is for Salem State University to comply with reporting requirements mandated by the US Department of Education for institutions receiving funds through the CARES Act: Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF).

Salem State University is required to make the report available and appear in a format and location that is easily accessible to the public. Accordingly, Salem State responses to specific requirements will be made available on the Salem State University website 30 days after the date when the institution received its allocation under 18004(a)(1) and updated every 45 days thereafter.

This plan, as presented and reviewed by the Board of Higher Education, was approved in December 2017.
