Our Message

Norwich advances research on national and global challenges and facilitates open intellectual exchange and knowledge sharing through its affiliated centers, institutes, and events.

Norwich University Applied Research Institutes (NUARI) serves the national public interest through the study of critical national issues and the development of related educational and training programs. We conduct rapid research, develop and deploy needed technologies, address related policy and technology issues to enhance a national capability for preparedness and response. NUARI was federally chartered under legislation sponsored by Sen. Patrick Leahy in 2002 and is funded in part through the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. NUARI is dedicated to pursuing the ideals of Norwich University founder Captain Alden Partridge to participate in the building of this nation and to prepare its graduates to deal with threats to an American way of life and builds on the University’s status as a National Security Agency Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education.
