NORWICH UPDATES

Keeping our Norwich students and community informed and safe.

PLEASE NOTE: To date, Norwich University has no known cases of coronavirus on campus.

On March 27, 2020 the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) was signed into federal law. Included in the Act was the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) to support college students whose education was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic with financial grants. These emergency grants are intended to assist students with unanticipated expenses for food, housing, academic course materials, technology, health care and childcare.

Norwich University applied for and received funding under this program and will use no less than half the amount, or $1,002,307, for emergency financial grants to students. Per Department of Education (DOE) guidance, the funds must be direct cash grants to students. Grants are prioritized based on socioeconomic circumstance. Students must meet federal eligibility requirements and cannot have been exclusively enrolled in an online program prior to March 13, 2020 in order to qualify to receive HEERF emergency funds. The university will be distributing $1,007,970 in the next several weeks to 956 students. This represents approximately 46% of the 2,095 CARES eligible students. Students may decline their award by contacting the Bursar’s office via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The funds that are declined will be distributed to another eligible student.

Members of the Norwich Family:

Today, 1 June 2020, is my first day as your President. In the coming weeks you will be hearing from me often on many subjects, including my honor to become a member of the Norwich community and to serve as your President.

Given the current state of unrest across our country, it is paramount that you immediately receive my personal communication in response to the death of Mr. George Floyd in Minneapolis. Indeed, Mr. Floyd’s death is a heartbreaking tragedy.

First, please allow me to reinforce very clearly that the Norwich community will be safe, inclusive, and respectful of all students, faculty, staff, and guests. Given our guiding values of mutual respect, dignity, and inclusive leadership, all of us have a significant role in helping to make our nation better. We are citizens of the greatest country in the world, and must stand united to combat intolerable behavior.
