Nova Southeastern University is an Equal Opportunity Employer
Located on a beautiful 314-acre campus in Fort Lauderdale, Nova Southeastern University (NSU) has more than 24,000 students and is the largest independent institution of higher education in Florida. NSU is one of only 37 institutions holding the dual classification of "Community Engaged" and "High Research" by the Carnegie Foundation.
In 1964, what was then called Nova University was chartered... as a graduate institution in the physical and social sciences. Over time, Nova added programs in law, education, business, psychology, computer science, and oceanography, and, in 1972, introduced its first off-campus course of study, in education. Soon, Nova became nationally recognized for its innovative distance learning programs. Today, field-based programs are located throughout Florida, in 23 states, and at selected international sites.
