NORTHFIELD, Vt. — Mark Treanor has won the 2021 William E. Colby Award for his book, “A Quiet Cadence.” Norwich University in Northfield, Vermont, presents the award, now in its 22nd year, annually to a first solo work of fiction or nonfiction that has made a major contribution to the understanding of military history, intelligence operations, or international affairs.

Norwich University’s 2021 Peace and War Virtual Summit concludes with pair of Wednesday afternoon sessions

How’s this for ripped-from-the-headlines urgency? On Wednesday, right as the Virtual Peace and War Center prepared to conclude by focusing partly on the U.S.-China cybersecurity struggle, The Washington Post and South China Morning Post outlined a growing threat.

Colby Award Selection Committee Chairman Alex Kershaw hopes to keep important emerging authors in the spotlight

Hungry for a history snack? Alex Kershaw can satisfy. His Twitter feed, a tasting menu of this-day-in-history moments, hints at the gourmet spreads in his many bestselling books, which chronicle military history, specifically World War II. Two years ago, he wrote a book on Norwich University’s two-century history.

Norwich President Dr. Mark Anarumo is spending this week (and maybe longer) among students in Dalrymple Hall, just as he spent a week in Wilson Hall earlier this semester. Both times, he stayed for leadership; he wanted to live the dorm life to better understand students’ needs, physical and emotional, and ensure they were met.

2021 Peace and War Virtual Summit to feature pair of discussions

Even amid polarized partisan division on everything from coronavirus relief to infrastructure proposals, Congress does have at least one bipartisan bill. It addresses Chinese competition in technology, and will get scrutiny Wednesday.

The same day, the Virtual Peace and War Summit at Norwich University will address the same U.S.-China technology race in two online sessions. The John and Mary Frances Patton Peace and War Center is presenting the summit, in the seventh week of an eight-week run.

Kpatcha Massina’s thirst for answers followed him into his dreams. 

The coronavirus pandemic had robbed the now-Norwich senior and Corps of Cadets member’s chance to travel to Burkina Faso to study food insecurity and film the documentary he’d imagined. Nevertheless, he was determined in a typically Norwich way, and no virus would crush his drive or dampen his fascination.
