Increase comes as national donations to colleges and universities drop slightly

Coronavirus pandemic-addled 2020 sent learning off-kilter at Norwich University; classes went virtual and the campus endured a COVID-19 case spike and in-room quarantine. The pandemic also sent money donations to colleges and universities down nationally, if ever so slightly. Nevertheless, Norwich University fundraising perked merrily along, surpassing its fiscal 2021 goal by more than $1 million.

When Guy Raz was working as an NPR journalist, spending time as an overseas war correspondent in Afghanistan and other nations, entrepreneurism was hardly a career notion.
