Inaugural Governor’s Institute

As part of the Institute, high-school-aged students received guidance across the Norwich disciplines of architecture, engineering, and construction management.

Norwich University welcomed 36 Vermont high school students on July 16 for its inaugural Governor’s Institutes of Vermont on Architecture, Design and Building. Students participated in a residential week of hands-on learning, working with concrete, masonry, and wood. Norwich faculty, alumni, and undergraduate students guided the youth participants on projects that emphasized regional materials and best practices of sustainable design and craft. With the help of the Vermont legislature and many donors, the Governor’s Institutes serve 630 talented Vermont teens statewide each year, with sliding-scale tuition that starts as low as $10 for a full weeklong experience, including room and board.
