Founded in 2013, Salisbury University’s Student United Way is a club that gives Salisbury University students the opportunity to better our local community by giving, advocating and volunteering in the critical areas of Education, Income and Health.  The Salisbury University chapter, Maryland's FIRST Student United Way, is in partnership with United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore, Salisbury University, and the local community. 

Want to get involved?  Contact current Student United Way President, Brielle McQuiston, at bmcquiston1@gulls.salisbury.edu or contact United Way at:  info@uwles.org/410-742-5143.
