SSC Cover 2015Norwich University’s Office of Academic Research serves faculty and students by providing access to internal and external resources to support their research and other scholarly activities. Support for faculty, in addition to that provided through the Senate’s Faculty Development Program described Section 3 of the Faculty Manual, includes resources from SVPAA Chase Scholarship Initiative Program funded by the Chase Endowment for Academic Excellence as well as support for obtaining and managing external grants and contracts. Support for students comes primarily from our Undergraduate Research Program which supports the involvement of students in original research, scholarship and creative work, both here on campus and also in off-campus settings.

Each year the Office of Academic Research produces a report of activities in a effort to communicate the scope of the various types of scholarship being done by our faculty and students. The most recent report is titled Expanding Our World: A Collective Quest, and highlights a wide variety of activities, products and awards. The two lead stories cover the appointment of our 2014 Charles A. Dana Professor, Dr. Richard Dunn, and the 2014 recipient of our prestigious Board of Fellows Faculty Development Prize, Dr. Karen Hinkle.

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.
