Norwich Has New Human Resources Director

Norwich University has named former Marine officer, Naval Academy graduate, and educator Dana Moss as its new director of human resources. He began his tenure on July 31, 2017.


Moss has over 17 years of experience in human resource administration. He was most recently the human resources manager for a large, international steel corporation, and prior to that, held a variety of HR responsibilities at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.


Moss is also a veteran and an educator. He initially enlisted into the United States Marine Corps and later served in it as an infantry officer for eight years, completing three deployments. He is currently a member of the New Hampshire Wing Civil Air Patrol and the parent of an incoming rook (first year student in the Corps of Cadets). He has taught courses in organizational leadership at several institutions of higher education since 1998.


Moss graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1982 with dual majors in history and political science. He said he looks forward to applying his combined military experience, service academy background, HR profession and teaching to his new role at Norwich.


“As Norwich University approaches the completion of its second century of educating leaders for the future, it is an optimal time to assess the legacy that has sustained this institution for all those many years, as well as to embrace the ideas and innovations that will ensure that the successive generations of leaders will be fully equipped and educated for ‘the next 200,’” Moss said. “I look forward to being a part of the leadership team that advances Norwich toward that journey.”


Norwich University, located in central Vermont, employs 853 faculty and staff on campus and in its online programs. Norwich is ranked #28 out of 116 Vermont businesses with more than 200 employees on Vermont Business Magazine’s “Largest Employers List.” Check out employment opportunities at www.norwich.edu.
