Norwich University’s College of Graduate and Continuing Studies is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE), formerly known as the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. (NEASC) - the nation’s oldest regional accrediting body - through its Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE).
Norwich University, the oldest Senior Military College (SMC) in the country and the birthplace of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC), invites inquiries, nominations and applications for the position of President. The University offers a unique learning environment that combines the resolve of a military education with a challenging liberal arts and professional education. With its distinctive history and mission, Norwich is committed to preparing both civilian students and those in the Corps of Cadets become critical thinkers as well as capable doers so that, upon graduation, they will be ready to make tangible contributions to their workplaces and to the world at large.
A new academic year, a new beginning, a long-standing tradition.
All new students will participate in the New Student Oath Ceremony, a long-standing Norwich tradition, Aug. 25 at Sabine Field. Corps and civilians participate jointly to cultivate campus-wide unity.
Incoming civilians and rooks will promise to accept, uphold and apply the principles of Norwich’s honor code and guiding values, ending their recitations with, “In all my endeavors, from this day forth, I will reflect in the spirit of the Norwich motto, ‘I will try.’”
“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.”
