NORTHFIELD, Vt. — Norwich University has been awarded a $100,000 Humanities Connections Implementation Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to continue work on the Norwich Humanities Initiative, an interdisciplinary curriculum project which was launched in 2018 with the support of a $35,000 NEH Humanities Connections Planning Grant.
Car parade on campus will let Norwich University community salute much respected, soon-to-retire leader
Richard W. Schneider has loved the parades — the thumping of feet, the trumpeters’ bleats, the lining of streets. He and his wife, Jaime, have gamely ridden in many Norwich parades over his 28 years as Norwich University’s president. On Labor Day weekend, for example, they rode on the university’s bicentennial float through Northfield as grand marshals of the Northfield Labor Day Parade.
On Tuesday, instead of being in a parade, the Schneiders will be honorees.
Graduation was supposed to be a final moment with our full cohort; this year’s reality was different
When I moved into Goodyear Hall in August 2016, I didn’t realize what was ahead at all. I was drawn to this place by the family atmosphere and the strong emphasis from the cadre that “when you’re this far away from home, you have nothing, and when you have nothing, all you have is each other. Lean on each other and learn from one another.”
Over the next three years, that would be the most important mindset to maintain.

MacDonnell said.

With pluck and panache, Norwich University students, faculty seize chance to celebrate earning degrees virtually
This moment was meant for a stage. Ordinarily, campus (and Northfield, Vermont) would be alive this weekend with energy and music and families — all gathered to honor the Class of 2020. Although the coronavirus emptied the university’s buildings and grounds, emotions remain high — joy and relief prominent — as students and their mentors and professors reflected on completing their degrees and meeting their futures.
NORTHFIELD, Vt. — Norwich University is honored to announce that its own President Richard W. Schneider, one of the nation’s longest-seated university leaders who will retire on May 31 after 28 years at the helm, will deliver the 2020 Commencement address to graduating seniors on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020.
