This past Tuesday, Norwich hosted a discussion panel moderated by General Sullivan. I remember some key take aways from the discussion as I was taking notes because I could not wait to blog about this opportunity.
General Fredenburgh was asked: "What do you think we can focus on as a constantly changing world in technology?"
Response: We cannot continue to centralize decision making, we need to focus on the human dimension along with the technical aspects, especially with the ability to operate in a multidimensional world, and, we must maintain readiness to be prepared for rapid changes.
I think one of the most important details of his response was maintaining readiness. As a future officers in the United States Military, it is important to maintain readiness. It is out job to ensure training is accomplished and to assess and reassess unit readiness to be prepared for anything.
General Lambert was asked: "What sets Norwich grads aside from anyone else?"
Our graduates have a high level of professionalism along with the name "Norwich", there is a whole history behind the university, and replicating the professionalism throughout the entire military force is important because this professionalism is instilled in us.
The most important part of that statement I believe is just knowing that Norwich is relatively well-known throughout the military and we are looked at for our professionalism.
This was a very great opportunity that not all universities have to offer! Norwich Forever!
