    Student Outcomes

    For nearly 200 years, Norwich University’s guiding values and mission have helped create an atmosphere of excellence. We are the nation’s oldest private military college and the birthplace of ROTC, serving a diverse student body that reflects the world today.

    Two thirds of our residential students join our Corps of Cadets, challenging themselves physically, mentally, and morally to excel as leaders in a structured military-style environment.

    We also serve civilian residential and commuter students and a large online graduate and continuing-education student body.

    Norwich faculty and staff challenge all of our students to push themselves academically, socially, and as leaders to realize their full potential. Our graduates build upon their Norwich educations to launch or grow careers and make outsized contributions to their communities, the nation, and the world.

    Norwich is unusual in higher education because we actually do focus in on a set of values.

    We stand for something, and it is our intention that all students, faculty, and staff will be guided by these values.

    Norwich’s mission statement is one of the most unique statements found in higher education.

    We know exactly who we are, why we are here, and where we are going. We are able to be very specific:

    A tradition of innovation

    There are more than 3,500 colleges in the USA from which to choose. How is Norwich University different from them, and does it matter? The answer depends on what you want from your college experience.

    Few American institutions of higher learning as old as Norwich University still closely adhere to the educational principles of its founders.


    Norwich University is governed by its Board of Trustees, the President of the University, and the senior leadership team, which includes the Provost and Dean of the Faculty, the Chief Financial Officer, the Vice President of Development and Alumni Relations, the Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, the Vice President of Marketing and Communications, the Chief Administrative Officer and the Special Advisor to the President. These leaders carry out the direction set for the University by the president.

    “To give our youth an education that shall be American in its character – to enable them to act as well as to think – to execute as well as to conceive – to tolerate all opinions when reason is left free to combat them – to make moral, patriotic, efficient, and useful citizens, and to qualify them for all those high responsibilities resting upon a citizen in this free republic.”

    Internationalized Education

    Norwich University values and actively supports opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to be globally engaged.

    We host a diverse student body of international students who come to Norwich to pursue their academic goals.

    We support our faculty by empowering them to travel, teach, and engage in research overseas to build intercultural proficiency and incorporate international perspectives into their teaching.

    Success After Norwich

    Norwich students turn their passions and experiences into real-world opportunities, internships and careers, thanks to one-on-one career advising, academic mentoring and a network of thousands of alumni and parents ready to offer advice and networking.

    Norwich’s 24,000-plus alumni span the globe, living and leading as entrepreneurs, advancing science and technology, improving communities and serving our nation’s military. Their affinity for Norwich extends to every student and graduate, and they’ll do all that they can to help.
