The Blue Color: Blue is a symbol of peace which is the meaning of Salem. Salem University is on a mission to raise Global Leaders in a peaceful learning environment using the art of conflict management that enhances continuity of academics; thus training leaders that will promote peace and resolve conflicts in a world torn apart by conflict and violence.

The Golden Rod: The rod is the symbol of strength and character. When a leader is trained to be competent and has no character, chaos is inevitable.

Nine White Stars: The white stars symbolize light to the world. Graduates of Salem University shall be as stars shining into the dark path of the earth in character, knowledge and wisdom that change things in their environment.

Rising Sun: The rising sun from a dark blue background reveals the strength of light no matter how little. Graduates of Salem University, whether few or many, will be sufficiently equipped with character, knowledge and resilience to stand out no matter the challenges in the environment and make a difference as the rising sun.

Open Book: Being an institution of learning, the open book symbolizes continuous attention to learning and knowledge as instruments of change and empowerment.

The Sheaves: The sheaves represent fruitfulness as in harvesting the wheat corn fully ripe in its season.


Knowledge, Empowerment and Self-Reliance.
