Dedication to service is a Norwich hallmark; our students thrive in civic efforts bigger than themselves. They’ve delivered disaster relief after Tropical Storm Irene, designed life-improving devices for veterans and built homes for people with special needs.

Our Center for Civic Engagement can connect you with volunteer opportunities promoting public service, including Norwich University Emergency Medical Services, a division of Northfield Ambulance. NU EMS helps provide medical coverage on the ambulance, the Crash Rescue unit, and the Off-Road Rescue unit which provides medical standby details for student clubs, ROTC detachments and the Corps of Cadets.

Other volunteer chances near our campus include work with Mayo Healthcare, an assisted living center; the Veterans’ Place, a transitional home for U.S. armed forces veterans; the Northfield Police Department; and the Boys & Girls Club.

Our Office of Academic Research lets you strengthen your academic portfolio and broaden your understanding with research. In just the last year, our students have studied early detection signs of the novel coronavirus and possible treatments for cancer.

Also cross-disciplinary coursework will get you thinking broadly. For example, Narrative Medicine, a course in our Norwich Humanities Initiative, gets students thinking of the importance of listening and storytelling.

The world needs your strength, talent, grit and compassion more than ever.
