NORTHFIELD, Vt. – Norwich University faculty members are available to discuss the COVID-19 pandemic and related issues on these topics:

Vermont State Police interview simulation teaches criminal justice students the art of calmer querying

You know the good cop-bad cop trope from television police procedurals: A witness (or suspect) enters a room, meets two police officers and faces two questioning styles — one aggressive (the bad cop), one friendlier (the good cop). Whatever the questioning style, the interviews are usually twitchy and impatient; the denouement must fit neatly into 44 minutes for an hourlong episode and commercial breaks are always looming.

But on a cold February morning, as clouds of snowflakes swirled furiously outside Ainsworth Hall, Vermont State Police detectives conducted interview simulations with preternatural calm. A pair of students recounted a real-life incident — a car wreck for one, teenage tomfoolery for another — to detectives Tylor Rancourt, a Norwich 2010 graduate, and Dan Burrows.

The Norwich University School of Nursing is pleased to announce that its first cohort of Accelerated BSN students graduated Dec. 19. This was an exciting milestone for the School of Nursing, which introduced the Accelerated BSN program in May 2018. Our six graduates, Kim Danziger, Jessie Fuller, Page Gaspar, Ryan McGrath, Melissa Muller and Samantha Tilton participated in the School’s traditional Nursing Baccalaureate Pinning Ceremony in Milano Ballroom, joining with faculty, friends, and family to commemorate their successful completion of the program.

Former students say Norwich job fairs consistently offer quality potential employees 

Norwich University boasts a strong alumni network, but the proof is in the pudding. As director of the Career and Internship Center, I know firsthand about our alumni’s strong commitment to hiring our graduates.

As much as Washington, D.C., houses national government’s gears, it holds national security’s infrastructure. Regional and law enforcement agencies take cues from, and work with, federal agencies in the nation’s capital — Homeland Security, the FBI, the National Drug Control Policy Office.

And this week, 12 students from the Criminal Justice Students Association and the Criminal Justice Honors Program are seeing the agencies up close.
