The Norwich Record

Spring 2016

In June, NU’s College of Liberal Arts debuted a reimagined Peace and War Center (PAWC) led by criminal justice professor Travis Morris. The center enables Norwich faculty and students from multiple disciplines to study issues related to peace and war in detail as well as showcase and leverage NU’s expertise far beyond campus. This year, the center brought a Canadian Fulbright scholar to campus and organized a NATO advanced-training course in Macedonia to address terrorism threats in southeastern Europe.

Sarwar Kashmeri, an adjunct political science professor and applied research fellow with the Peace and War Center at Norwich University, introduced former U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel at a recent dinner and keynote address hosted by the Foreign Policy Association in New York City. Kashmeri is a fellow at the nearly 100-year-old nonprofit, which aims to raise “awareness, understanding and informed opinion of U.S. foreign policy and global issues.” Last fall, he organized a three-day US Grand Strategy Conference at Norwich on “The Future of American Leadership in the World.” Hagel, a former two-term senator from Nebraska, served two years as the 24th U.S. Secretary of Defense. He redesigned his post in February 2015.
