Norwich University


The Norwich University Parent & Family Association Board is a volunteer association of current parents, guardians, spouses or family members. The objectives of the Board and NUPFA are to: Proud Dad at NU Parent & Family Weekend 
  • Promote a better understanding of Norwich University's educational programs, resources, policies and goals;
  • Promote a channel of communication between parents/guardians of our students and Norwich University;
  • Promote the benefits of an education at Norwich University;
  • Promote and support Norwich related events and activities.

By being a parent, guardian, grandparent, spouse of a Norwich student or alum you are part of the Norwich’s extended family and lifetime members of NUPFA.
