Corporal/Civilian Academic Mentoring

Part of Norwich University’s leadership initiative, this program is designed to guide freshmen through the transition from high school to college. All freshmen are assigned a student mentor, or CAM, for the fall semester. Mentors are academically successful sophomores, who volunteer to meet with their mentees for 11-12 sessions throughout the fall semester. Mentors are assigned by majors or schools, and they provide valuable information that is specific to all disciplines. The goals of the program include fine-tuning essential academic skills, working on time management, and helping freshmen navigate general school operations. CAM is a successful program, and mentors help ensure a healthy start to college.

Now in its second year, the GUIDE (Guidance, Understanding, Information, Direction, and Education) Mentorship Program invites volunteer faculty and staff to mentor students in academic, welfare, social, and career choices. In each case, the student and their mentor determine the focus of their mentorship relationship and the amount of time devoted to meeting. For more information, contact Prof. Elizabeth Gurrian.

Coaching for Leadership

Leadership development has been, and continues to be a fundamental component of the Norwich experience. At Norwich University, we believe the basis of great leadership is a set of defined skills that can be learned through lectures and practical exercises. But developing the traits/ skills of a leader is only part of the equation. Great leadership takes practice and Coaching for Leadership (CFL) provides the opportunity for practical application. CFL partners Norwich alumni, parents, faculty and staff with undergraduate students for a one-day coaching session to help students build self-awareness and prepare for real-world careers in the public and private sectors.
