NORTHFIELD, Vt. — Norwich University’s College of Graduate and Continuing Studies announces the opening of a new office in downtown Denver in early 2020. The new location serves Norwich’s four key initiatives to support the educational demands of that region’s growing workforce.
The first initiative is that the Denver office will position the College of Graduate and Continuing Studies to better serve adult learners in this metropolitan area with its online bachelor’s degree programs, master’s degree programs, graduate certificate programs and continuing and professional education courses and certificates through Norwich Prosm.
Norwich’s Denver location will provide in-person student support and serve as a hub for developing partnerships with regional businesses in creating customized education programs that provide their employees with critical skills needed for organizational growth.
The second initiative for this site is providing prospective high school students and their parents a Colorado location to learn more about undergraduate degree programs available at our Northfield, Vermont, campus.
The third initiative is providing residential students at our Northfield, Vermont, campus with administrative support through our local office to engage in Denver region internships through Norwich’s Study Away program.
The fourth initiative is leveraging Colorado’s education transformation culture for our Partridge Model of Education-to-Workforce that connects students from high school to employment as an alternative to talent acquisition for the region’s employers.
“I look forward to expanding Norwich’s footprint to a city that is constantly providing new opportunities and growth for the people and businesses within it,” Norwich University President Richard W. Schneider said. “The Denver office allows Norwich to better serve and engage with students and businesses across all areas of the U.S., as well as providing students with access to the tools and resources necessary to succeed.”
Norwich’s Denver office, at 901 Auraria Parkway, officially opens March 25, 2020. (The College of Graduate and Continuing Studies also maintains an office on Norwich’s Northfield, Vermont, campus).
The new Denver office and will host support personnel who will assist students and business partners on topics including:

- Development of custom professional programs for business through Norwich Pro
- Exam preparation courses from Norwich Pro such as Project Management Professional and Certified Information Security Systems Professional

“As a leader in online education, I recognize the responsibility that Norwich has to provide adult students with accessible learning opportunities,” Norwich University Vice President and College of Graduate and Continuing Studies Dean Bill Clements said. “By bringing personalized support to Denver, students and businesses have more flexibility and easier access to a range of available services that specifically address their educational goals.”
The public is invited to an open house of the Norwich Denver facility from 10:30 a.m. to noon March 25, 2020, to meet with support advisers, learn about Norwich’s online and residential programs and receive a free credit transfer evaluation for the online bachelor’s degree programs.
