Cyber at Norwich

NORTHFIELD, Vt. —Norwich University was announced to receive over $16 million in federal funding in support of the University’s commitment to creating the best cybersecurity educational program in the country.

Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, cast his final vote in the Senate on a bill that will fund over 30 projects across Vermont including two for Norwich.

Leahy secured $16.4 million in Congressional Directed Spending for the Norwich University Multi-disciplinary Cyber Fusion Research and Development Center to create educational and workforce training opportunities in areas such as cybersecurity, information operations and dominance, computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and real-time decision-making practices.

“Innovations in cybersecurity and the importance of cyber education and workforce development is critical to our state and our nation,” said President Mark Anarumo. “Norwich is honored to receive this federal funding, which demonstrates the value placed on our institution as critical to building the leaders needed in critical fields. I share my very personal gratitude for Senator Patrick Leahy who continues to champion the abilities and efforts of Norwich University and our dedication to securing the future of this great country.”

Norwich has a long history of being an educational leader in the cyber domain. In 1999, the University created a degree in Computer Security & Information Assurance, one of the first cybersecurity-based programs in the country.

“Cyber dominance is key for national security. Norwich continues to lead in the fields of cybersecurity education, research, and training, steadfast in our long-held tradition of educating future leaders to both build and defend the republic.” - President Anarumo

Norwich has updated its academic offerings to include an online cyber security degree, established several cyber based units including Norwich University Applied Research Institutes – NUARI, NU Center for Advanced Computing and Digital Forensics, and is a founding member of the National Cybersecurity Preparedness Consortium. Norwich has established the Norwich DoD Cyber Institute to provide and expand cyber experiential opportunities for students interested in pursuing DoD careers. Additionally, Norwich has received a variety of grants to develop the Distributed Environment for Critical Infrastructure Decision-Making Exercises (DECIDE®) cyber exercise platform, established a GenCyber summer camp for high school students, and created an artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and quantum computing academic and experiential learning center.

“In our increasingly complex world, which is interconnected globally via vulnerable critical technological systems, cybersecurity competency is absolutely necessary to maintain a civil and democratic society,” said President Anarumo. “Cyber dominance is key for national security. Norwich continues to lead in the fields of cybersecurity education, research, and training, steadfast in our long-held tradition of educating future leaders to both build and defend the republic.”
