I am very pleased to share with you, in my capacity as faculty development coordinator, some of the excellent work being supported by the Faculty Development Program at Norwich University. Funded with endowed income, the program provides support for faculty to develop their scholarship, creative work, and teaching by attending and presenting at conferences, workshops and courses, conducting research, and developing curricula in innovative ways.

Given the substantial commitment to teaching—the faculty at Norwich carry a 3-4 teaching load each year—being able to find ways to connect their teaching and scholarship ensures that faculty are staying engaged with developments in their areas, making contributions to the body of knowledge in those fields, and integrating the most up-to-date research into their courses. Our generous funding resources help to facilitate that work, enabling faculty to study traffic patterns in Ghana, to trace the footsteps of an Irish abolitionist, and to study in a comparative context nation-building in Botswana and Zimbabwe. Closer to home, faculty travel to libraries and archives, study manuscripts, design and build, and conduct experiments in the labs at Norwich and elsewhere with colleagues and collaborators.

No matter where they are working, our faculty serves as models of teacher-scholars striving to enrich their fields, the university, and their students’ intellectual lives.
