Global warming in the Arctic, which the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said has changed Arctic climate characteristics from mostly ice and snow to water and rain, has also opened new sea routes, sparking a mad international scramble for resources and raising security concerns for military officials.

Talks by international officials, intellectual interactions cites as favorite moments

By mantra and by tradition, Norwich University students stare down tomorrow’s challenges today, applying learning from a host of disciplines and experiences.

Increase comes as national donations to colleges and universities drop slightly

Coronavirus pandemic-addled 2020 sent learning off-kilter at Norwich University; classes went virtual and the campus endured a COVID-19 case spike and in-room quarantine. The pandemic also sent money donations to colleges and universities down nationally, if ever so slightly. Nevertheless, Norwich University fundraising perked merrily along, surpassing its fiscal 2021 goal by more than $1 million.
