During the 2017-2018 academic year, The Eye Institute (TEI) of Salus University provided free comprehensive vision care services to nearly 5,000 students in Philadelphia and the surrounding area through its School Vision Programs.
Salus University has recently entered year two of a three-year $75,000 grant partnership with the Northeast Pennsylvania Lions Service Foundation (Lions Service Foundation).
The choice of Salus as the name of our academic home in 2008 reflected a historical moment in our evolution. In order to appreciate that moment, a journey back in historical consciousness, not to live there, but to again feel, smell and experience the texture of our institutional history and how those aspirations gave birth to who we are today is important.
During the month of May and into early June, Salus University completed six new articulation agreements with three local colleges and universities - Messiah College, Drexel University College of Medicine, and La Roche College.
The University’s Bennett Career Services Center recently held a successful Transition to Practice event for the second year, while adding a new Career and Resource Fair to the mix. The Transition to Practice initiative was originally initiated to help provide students’ access to resources and the tools necessary to successfully transition from lives as students to emerging healthcare professionals.
