33 ideas big and small from Norwich students, faculty, staff, and alumni that are transforming campus and the world.
Charles A. Dana Professor of Geology David Westerman joined the Norwich faculty in 1982 and currently serves as associate vice president for research in the Office of Academic Research. From that perch, he has worked tirelessly to promote faculty and student scholarship at Norwich. Among the office’s achievements are the entirely self-funded Summer Research Fellow program for Norwich undergraduates and the university’s growing and glowing reputation for research. “Our faculty increasingly identify themselves as scholars and mentors,” Westerman writes, “with their own expectations to stay engaged and share their work at the peer-reviewed level.”
