The role of Academic Affairs is to provide a structured education that fulfills the university’s mission:
“To give our youth an education that shall be American in its character – to enable them to act as well as to think – to execute as well as to conceive – to tolerate all opinions when reason is left free to combat them – to make moral, patriotic, efficient, and useful citizens, and to qualify them for all those high responsibilities resting upon a citizen in this free republic.”
For almost 200 years, we have done this in a small college atmosphere where faculty come to know and mentor their students. We believe in experiential education and encourage students to pursue knowledge by collaborating with faculty on research projects.
The academic programs of Norwich University are administered through five colleges:
- College of Graduate and Continuing Studies
- College of Liberal Arts
- College of National Services
- College of Professional Schools
- College of Science and Mathematics
Our faculty design and deliver the course curriculum for all of our degree programs, and serve as the prime source of academic support for students. Academic Affairs also supervises these areas.
- The Kreitzberg Library and its librarians provide the information literacy needed for today’s world.
- The Sullivan Museum and History Center preserves Norwich history and helps students understand the school’s impact on our country and the world.
- The Academic Achievement Center helps students at all levels improve academic skills.
- The International Center finds study-abroad opportunities that enhance all academic disciplines and create lifetime experiences.
- The Center for Civic Engagement provides volunteer learning experiences that take students outside the classroom into the community.
- The Registrar’s Office helps students with academic schedules, records and transcripts.
- The Career Center helps students prepare for the future. Staff members and alumni assist with job searches, cover letters, résumés and practice interviews.
The mission of the Office of Academic Affairs is to provide the leadership and support necessary to ensure the integrity and excellence of the academic programs, support the faculty’s teaching and scholarship, and advocate for faculty and the academic programs within the University, community and external regulatory agencies, as required.
