It is with great disappointment that I inform you that Norwich University will be cancelling the on-campus 2020 Residency Conference scheduled for Monday, June 22nd to Friday, June 26th.
With the ongoing current global and domestic spread of the COVID-19 virus, we cannot be reasonably sure that conditions will improve sufficiently to safely bring our students and their guests and our faculty to campus. As many of them start to plan for the event, travel restrictions and group meeting requirements are becoming increasingly more restrictive.
Norwich University prides itself in being an organization that rises to meet a challenge. In fact, both the University’s tagline and theme for the 2020 Residency Conference were: "Expect Challenge, Achieve Distinction."
While the event is cancelled, the requirement remains unchanged. Instead, of attending on campus we are building a virtual capstone event during the same scheduled week. It will be comprised of live sessions, the keynote and Todd Lecture series event, interactive discussions, informative blog postings, pre-recorded professional development sessions and a few exciting Facebook Live events – including a CGCS staff Dog River Run!
