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 and serve 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.
