Associate Dean’s Message

Anthony J. DeNapoli, Ed.D.Welcome to Nova Southeastern University and to the Office of International Affairs (OIA). NSU's founding vision of providing education at times and in places convenient to students paved the way for many of the university's past international education programs, initiatives and activities, and continues to guide us as we develop future global efforts that connect NSU to the world.

Today, NSU has more than 1,200 international students from over 124 countries studying on campus, and well over 1,000 international students are taking courses online and in blended instructional delivery formats at our select international sites in the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and Latin America. NSU has alumni in over 63 countries around the world.

The Office of International Affairs serves as a base for the university's international initiatives and student services, and includes the Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) which is dedicated to providing immigration, orientation, counseling and overall assistance to all international students, visiting scholars, and faculty on and off campus. The OIA also provides ongoing assistance and support for all members of the university community engaged in campus internationalization and globalization efforts.

I urge you to take advantage of everything NSU has to offer, and to become a global ambassador for your country while you are here. Together, we can learn from each other and help promote multicultural awareness, harmony and peace around the world. Welcome to the NSU global network!

Anthony J. DeNapoli, Ed.D.
Associate Dean of International Affairs
