College History

History

The school was founded as Salem College in December 1888 by the Seventh Day Baptist Church. Over the next 100 years, the school continued as a liberal arts, teacher education, and nursing college. In 1989 it formed an alliance with Teikyo University of Tokyo, Japan, which changed the focus of the school to one of education of international students in a unique atmosphere. Salem College was renamed Salem-Teikyo University. The alliance with Teikyo ended in 2000, when the school was purchased by investors from Singapore. At that time, the school changed its name to Salem International University. Salem International University was acquired by Salem Education LLC in June 2005.The Salem College Administration Building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
