Dear Norwich University students, parents and families —
Please join the Office of the Provost for a live, one-hour virtual town hall broadcast at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 19. The interim provost and the associate provost for educational effectiveness will discuss student services related to academic success at Norwich University.
Norwich University has zero positive cases of COVID-19, is well above the 92nd percentile for vaccination rates, has an indoor mask policy that is being followed, is conducting surveillance testing of unvaccinated students, and is providing testing to symptomatic students. Given these initiatives and data, we continue to plan for a full fall 2021 term as scheduled, including a traditional Thanksgiving break, as outlined on the Registrar’s Academic Calendar.
Over the past several weeks, Dr. Stephen Fitzhugh, Interim Provost and Dean of Faculty, has been leading a process through which Norwich University faculty, staff, and students could provide input on completion of the Fall semester due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 in general and the uptick in the spread of the virus in Vermont and nationwide.
In the survey, three scenarios were presented to each group in keeping with our University’s shared governance model. The processes included a reaffirmation of our top priorities of delivering a full and complete fall term for student success while ensuring a healthy and safe environment for all. The deadline for input is Wednesday, September 29th.
