The only program of its kind at an American university, the Norwich University Military Writers’ Symposium convenes authors and experts in the fields of military history, intelligence, and current affairs to offer important perspectives on pressing global concerns. Traditionally, the symposium takes place on the picturesque Norwich campus in Northfield, Vermont. The 2020 symposium broke with tradition to offer a robust, all-virtual event. We returned to campus for the 2021 symposium, with selected programming also offered remotely.
THEME: “GLOBAL CONFLICT OR COOPERATION? EVOLVING ARCTIC SECURITY”
November 3-4, 2021
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
SUPPORT THE SYMPOSIUM
Pritzker Challenge: 2021 – 2025
The Pritzker Military Foundation (PMF), Norwich’s longtime philanthropic partner, has posed a $500,000 matching gift challenge through 2025 to grow the symposium’s endowment. Renamed the “Carlo D’Este ’58 Military Writers’ Endowment,” to honor the legacy of late symposium co-founder Carlo D’Este ’58, the endowment is essential to the symposium’s longevity, supporting its operating costs, the William E. Colby Award and year-round student enrichment opportunities on military history and current affairs. Should Norwich successfully raise $500,000, the PMF will match this effort with $500,000, bringing the endowment to over $1,000,000 and empowering the symposium to exist forever.
Please consider making a gift to help us carry on this excellent programming into the future.
