|Norwich University’s College of Professional Schools is committed to educating students in the tradition of university founder Capt. Alden Partridge. By providing our students the means, motivation, confidence and empathy to engage in the problems of our era, disciplined and innovative thinkers will be inspired to create the industries, systems, processes, machines and structures that meet the real-world challenges of our evolving society.
A message from Dean Aron Temkin
This issue of Connections provides a glimpse into our very busy fall, which has included two accreditation visits, departure from campus of both the WheelPad and CASA802 house (see coverage here and here), and a very successful Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Other great news includes: Assistant Professor Tolya Stonorov was named the 2016 Vermont Women in Higher Education Emerging Professional honoree, and our most recent nursing graduates had an impressive 94% first time pass rate and 100% overall pass rate this past summer on the NCLEX exams.
Programming such as this is not possible without our alumni’s strong history of support for the College’s many initiatives and efforts. Your support directly impacts the activities highlighted above and in these articles, whether through your time, internship and networking opportunities, contributions toward scholarships and university campaigns, or gifts to funds in the four Schools.
Tuesday, November 29th is #GivingTuesday, a 24-hour initiative to promote philanthropy and giving. The University’s goal is to recruit 200 donors to make a gift on #GivingTuesday at any level, in honor of our Forging the Future Bicentennial Campaign. And of course, we welcome gifts to the School funds on any day; these contributions have a real and lasting impact on the opportunities we can provide for our students.

Wheel Pad: A Great Idea, and a Beautiful Alliance
The Wheel Pad is an ecofriendly 200-square foot accessible bedroom and bathroom designed to be attached to an existing home. It provides a respectful and supportive space for people with mobility issues, making it easy for friends or family to provide support while figuring out long-term solutions.
Wheel Pad was conceived by Joseph Cincotta, Principal Architect of LineSync Architecture and Wheel Pad L3C, a green design architecture firm in Wilmington, Vt.
Norwich students were intrigued with the idea of Wheel Pad, its possibilities for veterans, and opportunities for engineering, architecture, and project management students, so they built the Wheel Pad prototype.Read more about the partnership.
