About Norwich University

The infrastructure for active-learning requires a new architecture for student success in today’s and tomorrow’s world. 

Norwich University, acting in compliance with the Student Right to Know Act, connects consumers to the data we are required to submit to the Department of Education/National Center for Education Statistics/IPEDS (found on the College Navigator site). Information found on College Navigator will contain the most recent publicaly released enrollment, retention, graduation rates, (and other information) released by the Department of Education on Norwich’s behalf.

These leaders carry out the direction set for the University by the president.
