Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.


Keeping our Norwich students and community informed and safe.

PLEASE NOTE: As of October 21, Norwich University reports zero active cases of COVID-19 in a total of 1665 students currently in residence on the Northfield campus. The cumulative total of positive cases is six to date. As a precautionary measure during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Norwich campus is closed to the public for the foreseeable future to include all buildings, fields and tracks. Thank you for your understanding.

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!

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the virtual requirement for the 2020 Residency Conference, please email Megan Liptak, Residency Conference & Events Coordinator at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
