Norwich University governance
Norwich University is governed by its Board of Trustees, the President of the University, and the President’s Cabinet.
The Board of Trustees at Norwich is an active group that serves not only as an overseer of the University, but also as a participant in the decision-making and policy-making process, steering and guiding Norwich into the future.
The Board of Trustees consists of 35 men and women, each of whom brings a unique life experience to the process. Trustees are alumni and non-alumni; military, business, and educational leaders. Their experiences help them to develop the best processes by which to form the military and civilian leaders of tomorrow. The Board divides itself into a number of sub-committees that focus on select areas of the University for careful study.
The President is a member of the Board of Trustees and is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the University. As the school’s CEO, he takes an active role in the educational and business processes of the University.
The President’s Cabinet is the senior administrative structure. This group of key administrators manages all areas of the University, including academics, student life, facilities and business initiatives. The cabinet members are the key staffers on campus in carrying out the direction set for the University by the president, and on all of his direct reports.
