NORTHFIELD, Vt. — Norwich University welcomed Dr. Sharon Hamilton as associate vice president of strategic partnerships on July 1.

Rafael Pereira, a 2020 Norwich University electrical engineering graduate, works with Dr. Kevin Fleming, a Norwich psychology professor (off-camera), to arrange electrodes on a headdress that will connect to an electroencephalogram. Data gathered underpinned a machine learning research project Pereira and three classmates conducted as their senior capstone project. (Photo courtesy Rafael Pereira.)

Four electrical engineering students explore possibilities for nonoral communication in capstone electroencephalogram project

For people with brain injuries, communication can come in, and with, a blink. And, for a quartet of fresh Norwich University graduates, blinks plus engineering may equal better lives for people incapable of oral speech.

In a study dubbed Neuro-Comm and advised by electrical and computer engineering professor David Feinauer, the Class of 2020’s Madeline Long, Mary Mota, Rafael Pereira and Christian Thompson used blink pattern data to fuel a machine learning system, aiming to determine whether electrical brain signals could enable communication.

Students in the Narrative Medicine class that opened the Norwich Humanities Initiative visited National Life’s offices in Montpelier in November to see “Being There,” a collection of portraits and stories from 14 hospice caregivers in central Vermont by photographer Corey Hendrickson. The initiative’s pilot slate continues with three new courses. (Photo courtesy of Patricia Ferreira.)

NORTHFIELD, Vt. — Norwich University has been awarded a three-year, $138,917 grant from the Davis Educational Foundation for “Building a Humanities-Centered Interdisciplinary Curriculum to Foster Citizen Scholars,” the Norwich Humanities Initiative’s second phase. This work aims to create an interdisciplinary minor that combines the humanities with technical and professional studies.

Someday, after fall semester classes have resumed and students filter through the science-lab-housing U Building, they might stop to see Olivia Bloom, Emily Johnston and Bryan Mukama peering from a wall, representing a landmark Norwich University achievement.

In September 2019, Norwich University President Mark C. Anarumo told college leaders in a speech at the Air Force Academy that good leaders understand that culture is the overarching ingredient for success. He has said several times, before and after his appointment to succeed Richard W. Schneider, that Norwich has a culture that promotes excellence and success. (Photo by Mark Collier.)

The “can you lead” question hangs perpetually over future leaders, Norwich University’s new president, Mark C. Anarumo, told a Colorado audience in September 2019, and cultures that promote excellence can ensure the answer is “yes.”
