About Norwich University

Article Index

Norwich University is governed by its Board of Trustees, the President of the University, and the senior executive team. These leaders carry out the direction set for the University by the president.

The Board of Trustees at Norwich is an active volunteer group that serves not only as an overseer of the University, but also as a participant in decision-making and policy-making process, steering and guiding Norwich into the future.

The Board of Trustees consists of 28 men and women, each of whom brings a unique life experience to the University. Trustees are alumni and non-alumni; military, business and educational leaders. Their experiences help the University leadership to develop the best academic programs, experiential learning opportunities and operational processes by which to form the military and civilian leaders of tomorrow. The Board divides itself into a number of committees, aligned with the major operating officers of the university, to focus on select areas of the University for careful study.

As the University’s Chief Executive Officer, the President takes an active leadership role in the educational and business processes of the University.

The Provost, as the University’s Chief Operating Officer, oversees the Office of Academic Affairs and the Office of Academic Research, as well as the Senior Vice President of Student Affairs and Information Technology and the Vice President of Enrollment Management and Strategic Academic Initiatives.

“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.”
