At Convocation, President Mark C. Anarumo tells students to sharpen their skills to better tackle world’s challenges
Learning is more than acquiring knowledge, Norwich University President Mark C. Anarumo said during his 2020 Convocation address, it’s learning to apply that knowledge to let students both think and act. Knowledge is of no use, he said, until it’s put to use. And with major challenges everywhere in the nation and world, tomorrow’s leaders will need to use, and apply, all they know.
As much as students have gathered in classrooms and outdoor spaces to learn this new semester, they have gathered at Kreitzberg Library.

Anyone who turns on a television or reads a newsfeed these days knows America has been struggling with political division, a stress on top of the coronavirus pandemic. With the U.S. presidential election less than 60 days off, rhetoric has intensified toward crescendo. But on Friday, Norwich University will pause to reflect on a moment that has unified America — remembering the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
