In higher education, establishing partnerships with businesses that are invested in lifelong learning forms a crucial component of continued organizational success. Dr. William Clements, Vice President and Dean of the College of Graduate and Continuing Studies at Norwich University, is instrumental in securing such mutually beneficial arrangements. In a career spanning nearly four decades in higher education, Dean Clements has developed a keen eye for the types of partners that stand to benefit from a relationship with Norwich while providing optimal value to Norwich’s unique network of learners and alumni.
In early January 2018, Dean Clements appeared as a guest of the Leading Learning podcast, hosted by Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele, where he discussed the ways in which Norwich utilizes professional partnerships to meet the needs of learners, as well as the impact of technology on pedagogy and continuing education. Additional topics included the benefits of distance education to the military; the importance of supplementing a degree with lifelong learning habits and seizing further educational opportunities; and the ways in which Dean Clements’ personal educational journey has impacted him and his style of leadership since joining Norwich University in the 1980’s.
