Norwich University Development and Alumni Relations

Fostering a sense of camaraderie and community is at the heart of everything we do.

Some of the ways the Development and Alumni Relations group creates a fun, festive, and growth-oriented work environment include: 

•    Local, regional, and national conferences through the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), Association for Fundraising Professionals (AFP), and other trade groups.
•    Social gatherings, including barbeques and annual Ski Day, and team retreats.
•    Service-learning activities such as Norwich University Staff Retreat Day.
•    University-wide recognition for milestone years of service.
•    Campus-wide wellness initiatives.
•    Opportunities to learn from, and engage with, world-renowned leaders and thinkers, including the Military Writers’ Symposium, Todd Lecture Series, and many more.
