    Nova Southeastern University, a private, not-for-profit institution, offers a
    diverse array of innovative academic programs at the undergraduate, graduate,
    and professional levels, complementing on-campus educational opportunities and
    resources with accessible distance learning programs, and fostering intellectual
    inquiry, leadership, and commitment to community through engagement of students
    and faculty members in a dynamic, life-long learning environment.

    A tour of the NSU campus is an architectural and intellectual feast, with
    cutting-edge research and learning facilities at every turn. Encompassing 300
    acres on the western edge of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, NSU is the modern-day
    embodiment of Thomas Jefferson’s vision of a university as society’s
    intellectual and cultural hub.
    At the heart of it all is the Alvin Sherman Library, Research, and Information
    Technology Center—situated between a sparkling lake and wide-open green spaces,
    which serve as ideal backdrops for the numerous open-air festivals that take
    place on campus throughout the year.
    The library is flanked on one side by NSU’s innovative H. Wayne Huizenga School
    of Business and Entrepreneurship and the Graduate School of Computer and
    Information Sciences and on the other by the breathtaking new Don Taft
    University Center, our state-of-the art, multipurpose sports and recreation
    Just steps away, you’ll find the Shepard Broad Law Center and the Maltz
    Building, housing NSU’s Center for Psychological Studies and the Graduate School
    of Humanities and Social Sciences.
    Across campus, you’ll discover NSU’s Health Professions Division, which is home
    to the university’s colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, Dental Medicine,
    Optometry, Pharmacy, Allied Heath and Nursing, and more as well as medical and
    dental clinics that serve the neighboring community
    NSU is also home to University School, a pre-k through grade 12 college
    preparatory school, and the Jim& Jan Moran Family Center Village, which houses
    the Mailman Segal Institute for Early Childhood Studies.
    But NSU isn’t all work and no play. In addition to an array of on-campus housing
    options, you’ll find plenty of athletic fields for both intramural competition
    and NSU’s own NCAA Division II Sharks teams.
    NSU is also home to the Miami Dolphins, whose headquarters and training camp are
    located right on campus. Just look for “The Bubble,” a two-acre, inflatable dome
    housing one of the team’s three practice fields.
    And while not located directly on campus, the campus tour wouldn’t be complete
    without a mention of two other NSU showcases: The Oceanographic Center, which
    sits on 10 acres of Atlantic oceanfront and serves as home to the acclaimed
    National Coral Reef Institute and the Guy Harvey Research Institute; and the
    Fischler School of Education and Human Services in North Miami Beach, which
    continues to enjoy a national reputation for the quality of its education
    As a leader in technology and innovation, NSU has been named one of America’s
    Top 20 Cyber Universities by Forbes magazine. Wireless access and computer
    microlabs throughout the campus make it possible to connect to the world from
    virtually anywhere.
