Major General (VSM) Mark Anarumo, PhD
Dr. Mark Anarumo, a highly decorated military veteran, scholar, and practitioner in the fields of terrorism, political violence, criminal justice, character development, and leadership, became the 24th president of Norwich University in June 2020.
Dr. Anarumo assumed the presidency amidst the COVID-19 global pandemic and led the university successfully through a year of full, yet modified, campus operations including academics, athletics, and student life. His empathic leadership demonstrated in such challenging times attracted national news media coverage highlighting his proactive, transparent, and frequent communications that emphasized student mental health and the well-being of the university and central Vermont communities.
As president, Dr. Anarumo prioritizes building academically, experientially, and organizationally upon Norwich University’s 200-year-plus legacy, with special attention to a tradition of innovation. At Norwich, he applies three decades of leadership experience to propel modernization and fiscal responsibility. He brings many years of documented high performance in the military and as a faculty member with several elite civilian colleges and universities, combined with diverse domestic and international networks and affiliations. He has a proven track record of success in securing traditional and nontraditional revenue streams and building world-class faculty development and student leadership programs.
