Mission and Values
The mission of Norwich University is:
To give our youth an education that shall be American in 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 of this free republic.
In pursuit of this mission, Norwich is guided by a series of values that give all students, faculty, and staff a common denominator, an agreed-upon set of expectations; these values help to form a strong and enduring bond among students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
