Norwich University’s Office of Academic Research serves faculty and students by providing access to internal and external resources to support their scholarly activities and professional development.
Faculty can find information about the Faculty Development Program in the Faculty Manual in Section III Professional Development, including information on eligibility and application processes for Faculty Activity Grants, Research and Publication Expenses Grants, Curriculum Development Expenses Grants, Independent Study Leaves, Charles A. Dana Research Fellowships, Curriculum Development Fellowships, Board of Fellows Faculty Development Prize, and Charles A. Dana Category I Grants.
Additional resources for faculty come from VPAA Chase Initiatives in the form of International Travel Grants, Junior Faculty Startup Grants, and Faculty Release-time Awards, all funded by the Chase Endowment for Academic Excellence.
The Student Research Program supports the involvement of students in original research, scholarship and creative work, and provides internal support for Student Research Grants, Student Travel Awards, and Student Summer Research Fellowships. The Office also provides support to students seeking external funding.
Curiosity is contagious. Professors that are feeding their curiosity are recognized by students immediately. They understand the excitement that the professor brings to the process.
– Associate Vice President of Research Dave Westerman

Faculty working with a student on coordinated, but separate, projects are also eligible to compete for summer research fellowships in this program.
