NORTHFIELD, Vt. — Norwich University has developed a team and process for testing wastewater on campus for early detection of the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19

NORTHFIELD, Vt. — On Friday, Oct. 2, during virtual 2020 Homecoming, Norwich University officials launched the “Shoulder-to-Shoulder” initiative, a three-year, $28 million fundraising effort.

The initiative is focused on raising funds for five strategic priorities: The Norwich Fund, scholarships, technology endowment, academic enhancement and planned giving.

“It is not lost on me that this initiative, named Shoulder-to-Shoulder, is being launched ... when we have to stand at least 6 feet apart from each other,” President Mark C. Anarumo said in a video launching the initiative at 2020 Homecoming, which was virtual this year because of the pandemic. “Although we are physically separated in these unprecedented times, we must remain united in mission and in service to the next generation.”

The Norwich Fund fuels everything from core operations to innovative opportunities and strategic priorities. It also provides crucial resources that allow the university to offer a timely response to unforeseeable events and urgent needs, such as during the coronavirus pandemic.

Scholarships are imperative to keeping Norwich affordable, a strategic priority for the university. Improving the affordability of a Norwich education remains essential to attracting the best and brightest students. Furthermore, with the economic stresses posed by COVID-19, scholarships are especially important to attracting and retaining top students, further solidifying Norwich’s reputation of excellence.

The technology endowment is crucial for Norwich University to accommodate online courses and provide interactive resources that create a modern, flexible hub for teaching and learning. To stay ahead of the curve, our technology endowment will ensure the maintenance and updating of campus resources and provide access to top-of-the-line systems and equipment.

Investment in academic enhancement will support even more of the experiential learning that defines a Norwich education and occurs outside of the classroom outside, away and abroad. And gifts via planned giving, whether through gifts of bequests, annuities or trusts, make a lasting impact at Norwich and help ensure the university’s future.

“For over 200 years, Norwich has attracted individuals who share a common bond of leadership. We come from many different places and backgrounds as citizen soldiers who strive to make our country great,” Anarumo said. “It is this robust community of students, parents, alumni, faculty, staff and friends that sustains Norwich’s legacy.”
