About CCE

Service to Community and Nation.
In keeping with the mission and tradition of Norwich University, students, staff, and faculty engage in a variety of public service activities throughout the entire calendar year. All students are encouraged to become active volunteers as part of their college experience with the aim of developing graduates who are “ready, not reluctant” to serve their community and nation.

Get Involved.
The first step for students who wish to volunteer with a local nonprofit organization (on a onetime or on-going basis) is to register as an NU volunteer by visiting and creating a profile at getconnected.norwich.edu or by visiting the CCE.

Leadership and service projects are local, national, and international in scope and consist
of work with the elderly, youth, homeless, hungry, differently-abled, economically
disadvantaged, and partnering nonprofit organizations.

  • Norwich University Emergency Medical Services (NU EMS)
  • Rotaract (a collegiate program in partnership with Rotary International)
  • Buddy Up Youth Mentoring Program
