Our Mission

Through relevant academic programs, engaged faculty, and a personalized educational experience, Norwich University's College of Graduate and Continuing Studies has created a dynamic learning environment that empowers adult learners to effect positive change in their lives, the organizations in which they work, and the communities where they live.

Underlying our mission is a set of shared values and beliefs that both informs our teaching and drives our growth as an institution:

Leadership and service - We believe that positive change begins with those who lead, and to be an effective leader, you must be willing and committed to serving a purpose greater than yourself. All of our programs emphasize the development of core leadership qualities: a strong ethical foundation, a strategic mindset, a global perspective, the ability to communicate with clarity and impact, and an overriding commitment to service.

Thinking and acting - Knowing what to do is important. Knowing how to do it is just as essential. Through a curriculum that balances theoretical knowledge with real-world experience and practice, we help our students become in-depth thinkers and strategic doers who bring tangible value to their workplaces and communities.

Lifelong learning - We believe the pursuit of knowledge should be an ongoing endeavor and offer a wide range of academic programs that meet students at various stages of their careers and lives. Whether students are seeking professional advancement or personal fulfillment (or both), our programs are designed to facilitate lifelong learning and continued self-improvement.

Challenge and support - We believe that most things worth doing require hard work - a belief summed up in our institutional motto: Expect challenges. Achieve distinction. Our goal as a college is to push our students to their personal best while providing them with the support they need to be successful. They will experience this support as a student and beyond as a member of our Norwich alumni community.

Our Commitment Fulfilled through Norwich University Online

In keeping with our commitment to offer programs that reflect the diverse professional and personal goals of our students, the College of Graduate and Continuing Studies delivers its master's degree, bachelor's degree completion, graduate certificates, a teaching certificate and enrichment programs through Norwich University Online. This dynamic online learning platform makes it possible for working adults and other lifelong learners to advance their education regardless of their location or schedule constraints.
