Now entering its third year, Washington Policy Week brings students in Professor Dart Thalman’s U.S. Security Policy and the Private Sector course to the nation’s capital for a weeklong capstone event. In previous years, students have paid high-level visits to the White House, the FBI, the Pentagon, Capitol Hill, and leading private-sector firms and nonprofits. D.C. activities are coordinated by Thalman and an energetic group of distinguished Norwich alumni led by NU Board of Fellows representative Jon Allen ’94 of Booz Allen Hamilton.

College of Liberal Arts Dean Andrea Talentino describes Washington Policy Week as a “great idea.” She adds that Norwich students who participate or attend similar workshops and events, such as the Foreign Policy Association meeting, West Point’s Student Conference on U.S. Affairs, or the St. Anselm program for Women’s Leadership, “come back saying they changed their lives.” You can read more about Washington Policy Week in the Norwich 2014–2015 Annual Report (PDF) in the fall 2015 issue of the Norwich Record.
