Norwich University receives Council for Advancement and Support of Education award

Norwich University’s fundraising success shows all over its campus, in new buildings like Mack Hall, the modernized Kreitzberg Library and the renovated Dewey, Webb and Ainsworth halls. The five-year Forging the Future campaign, which ended in 2019, topped $120 million and enabled those upgrades. It also helped land the university an Educational Fundraising Award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, or CASE.
