Founded in 1819 by Captain Alden Partridge of the U.S. Army, Norwich is the oldest private military college in the United States of America and one of our nation's six senior military colleges. For nearly 200 years, the Corps of Cadets at Norwich in Northfield, Vt., has been setting precedents by bringing students together through leadership training and multidisciplinary education. The birthplace of the Reserve Officers' Training Corp (ROTC), Norwich serves all four branches of service. In the Corps of Cadets, students gain the practical experience, knowledge and strength of character to try, no matter what obstacles they face. Civilian and Corps students work together in the classroom, on the athletic fields, and in the campus center, learning and benefitting from one another.
Thirty different bachelor degree programs help students excel in everything from Criminal Justice to Engineering, and from "cybercrime" with Computer Security and Information Assurance (CSIA) to the liberal arts. Graduates of Norwich make a difference in the world as leaders of business, government, health care and the military. In addition to accredited and nationally recognized academic programs and athletics, students are drawn to Norwich's guiding values and the integrity and structure they provide while on campus and after graduation.
One such discipline is the Leadership Development Program, which provides all students an opportunity to learn about their personal leadership style and apply their newfound skills within their families and communities. All incoming freshmen are required to complete the two-year program and those who continue on and complete all four years will receive a minor in leadership and a medallion upon graduation.
You don’t have to be enrolled in college to start exploring your leadership potential at Norwich. Sp Future Leader Camp (FLC) is a two-week summer program dedicated to developing the leadership skills of high school students. FLC provides participants with a challenging and meaningful adventure camp experience while building an understanding of small-group leadership techniques, leadership ethics, teamwork, problem-solving and effective communication.
Conducted four times each year, Youth Leadership Conference Weekends (YLCW) are programs aimed at students interested in advancing their leadership skills through an intense development program. Since 1997, students have gained insight on leadership skills, barriers to communications and teamwork. YLCW also teaches participants about life at senior military colleges and encourages students to look into applying for Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) scholarships.
Whether you’re looking for rigorous academics, championship athletics, or an exceptional variety of clubs and organizations, Norwich has the resources and amenities to offer of a large university with the personal feel and attention of a small private college.
With real-world relevance and a legacy of breaking new ground in military and leadership training, a Norwich education opens doors, ignites dreams, and launches passions.
