FOREWORD

 

August 1, 2017

 

The president of Norwich University has promulgated these Rules and Regulations for one purpose—to create an environment where our university community can thrive under its guiding values and thereby achieve our vision statement.

 

I charge each student—regardless of lifestyle or residency—to adhere to the written word, as well as the spirit and intent of these regulations to achieve the purpose cited by the president.

 

Norwich is a Senior Military College, one of only six in the nation, with the distinction of having a vibrant civilian population with all of us living and learning together on an intimate, small, private college campus in central Vermont. Norwich is unique in the landscape of higher education. I want every student to be proud of their school, embrace our values, share in our rich traditions and diversity, and live the Norwich motto – I Will Try!

 

This edition incorporates changes in student due process, disciplinary procedures and honor procedures. Additionally, the Student Bill of Rights, approved by the Student Government Association and President Schneider in April 2012 is published. This document safeguards the rights and responsibilities of all NU Students.

 

These regulations supersede previous editions and changes provided verbally, electronically or by written correspondence. Direct your questions to your residence hall or student leadership body or to the appropriate Student Life Division staff member for resolution.

 

Frank T. Vanecek, D.B.A.

Brigadier General, Vermont State Militia

Senior Vice President for Student Affairs and Technology
