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

On March 3rd we officially launched our newest center of excellence, the Center for Global Resilience and Security (CGRS). Housed within the College and led by Dr. Tara Kulkarni, the center provides a forum for students, faculty, scientists, agency leaders and stakeholders to tackle the challenges arising from large-scale environmental change. The opening event brought together over 40 people from across the university and around Vermont to make a first pass at answering how the center can contribute to solving problems of energy, water, infrastructure and climate impact. Students were mixed in among the groups, and several visitors shared with me that they found the students to be both well-informed and well-spoken. It was a great opening event for this important new initiative.

In a few weeks, please consider joining us for the Making Innovation Symposium on Thursday, April 27th. Norwich has long fostered good problem solvers and versatile thinkers; the many entrepreneurs among our alumni are a testament to this. Today we are striving to make the skills of creative problem solving a broader and more ubiquitous part of our learning culture. We have taken the lead in shaping the panel and the accompanying showcase of innovative student projects. The Todd panel includes nationally and internationally recognized leaders in business, design, technology, and social innovation: Michael Jager, Natalie Jeremijenko, and William Kamkwamba, with Johnathan Speed—a 2014 graduate of Norwich’s Master of Arts in Military History—as our moderator. The exhibition of student projects will open to the public at 6 p.m. and the Todd panel discussion will begin at 7 p.m. Both events will be in Plumley Armory. If you are able to join us, it will be an outstanding evening!

One last note: If you haven’t seen it yet, you can check out all the Norwich alumni making news at our Alumni website here.

Norwich Forever!

FIRST® Lego League

« 1 of 2 »

 

 

Norwich University hosted the annual Vermont FIRST LEGO League (FLL) championship on Sunday, Dec. 11, 2016, in Shapiro Field House beginning at 9 a.m.

Founded by Segway inventor Dean Kamen, FIRST® LEGO® League is designed to inspire children in science and technology through the use of robotics. Open to 9 to 14-year-old students around the world, teams are tasked with researching a real-world scientific issue and designing and building an original robot.

Norwich University established the state’s regional FLL affiliate beginning in 2013 hosting regional qualifiers and beginning in 2015 hosting the state championship event.

The Norwich event on Dec. 11 marked the second year of an independent FLL region in the state of Vermont. With 24 teams of up to 10 students each, along with coaches and parents, there was much to see throughout the day, and spectators are encouraged to attend.

Read about the experience from the perspective of a student volunteer.
