Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.


Keeping our Norwich students and community informed and safe.


PLEASE NOTE: In the abundance of caution and for the health and safety of the Norwich and central Vermont community, the Norwich campus is closed to the public for the foreseeable future to include all buildings, fields and tracks. Thank you for your understanding.

On March 1, 2020, the Center for Disease Prevention and Control released a guidance to Institutions of Higher Education with students participating in exchange or study abroad programs recommending that they consider postponing or cancelling their study abroad programs.  The full guidance can be found here:  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/student-foreign-travel.html

I wanted to be the first to inform you that should you wish to postpone or cancel your international Spring Break trip, the International Center will do all we can to support your decision to do so.   

Unless your local provider has decided to cease its program operations, Norwich University will not require you to cancel your planned trip.  We reserve the right to do so at any time, for any reason.  However, our practice is to do so when the State Department elevates your country’s Travel Advisory to Level 4:  Do Not Travel or the Center for Disease Prevention and Control elevates your country’s Warning Level to Red:  Avoid all non-essential travel to this destination.  For a complete list of Travel Advisories, go to:   https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices and https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/traveladvisories.html  

Your health and safety is important to us.  Should you wish to continue with your plans, please stay in close communication with your local program provider, monitor all local news, and follow the State Department’s news feeds. 

If I can help you in any way, including helping your group decide on a plan, do not hesitate to reach out to me directly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..   

If your parents have any questions or concerns, they can also call me directly at (802) 485-2716.
