As requested at the HPD Town Hall meeting we have added a “Loading and Unloading; 15 minute” parking space in front of the Terry Administrative Building.
Unfortunately, there is a shortage of construction materials available in Puerto Rico and in many cases we are waiting on them to be shipped from the U.S.A. This situation is causing the delay in completing much of the work that needs to be done throughout the campus. The Office of Facilities Management at Nova Southeastern University is constantly in contact with the Puerto Rico Campus Director’s office so students are invited to stop by the campus administration offices on the third floor to receive updates. We apologize for the inconvenience and we hope that the campus is 100% back to normal as soon as possible.
Students graduate whenever they complete the requirements for their degree (plus filing all the paperwork and requests). However, the Commencement Ceremony is only held once a year. The Ceremony is not the graduation date for a student.
Tuition rates vary by academic level and program. Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU’s) tuition and fee rates are designed to cover the costs of operating our academic programs to best educate our students. As a private not for profit university, the majority of NSU’s operating budget comes from tuition payments, unlike public institutions that receive a significant portion of their budgets from government appropriations. The university has worked to contain tuition rates while continuing to provide a high quality education experience.
In order to assist in stabilizing tuition rates and increasing scholarship and research opportunities for students, the university has embarked upon the Realizing Potential capital campaign. Realizing Potential is NSU’s first comprehensive philanthropic campaign, which aims to raise $250 million. One half ($125 million) of the campaign goal is slated to fund scholarships and other essential resources that enable the university to attract and retain exceptional students, provide opportunities to students from diverse backgrounds, and offer advanced experiential and applied learning opportunities. Another $300 million will be garnered through sponsored research, service, and training projects. The university’s cumulative goal is to raise more than half a billion dollars by 2020. As of November 29, 2017, the campaign has raised $222 million.
Diversity is very important to our university because it significantly enriches the learning environment. The NSU community recognizes and embraces the multitude of benefits gained through diversity. NSU prides itself on being a welcoming community. In fact, Diversity is one of the university’s Core Values. For this reason, all entering undergraduate students are eligible to apply for competitive institutional scholarships (i.e., Deans or Razor’s Edge scholarships). NSU also has a scholarship and a debt management department whose team members are available to meet with individual students in person or by telephone. You are encouraged to contact the financial aid office for more information.
HSCS’ strives to meet the needs of any student needing counseling services. If I am told about a student, like the one who sent the original email, while I may not be able to let you know that we have knowledge of that student, we would make every attempt to contact the student to reconcile his or her concerns.
Our institutions policy outlines that smoking and tobacco use are prohibited in all campus facilities and on all university property and other property owned or leased by the University with no exception; this includes the use of an electronic cigarette or any other device intended to simulate smoking. Public Safety has been designated as the reporting agent for all violations of the smoking and tobacco free policy. As such, this team establishes contact with violators of this policy to determine their organization affiliation, to communicate the policy, to document the incident and to share these findings with the appropriate University office for compliance management. Enforcement procedures and corrective actions will be in line with any other violation of student or employee policy.
If a tobacco/smoke free policy violation is observed by a member of our campus community, please report it immediately by calling Public Safety at (954) 262-8999.
The HPD Library and its Annex in the Assembly 2 building have recently undergone some renovations.
We apologize for the inconveniences this year during this transition.
Unfortunately, with over 6,000 HPD students the HPD Library will not always be able to accommodate all of the HPD student body.
We do, however, hope that our recent renovations have increased our available study space and made these spaces more comfortable.
In 2017 we have added two (2) more total HPD Study Rooms and increased the available study space in the HPD Library reading room by 1,720 sq. Ft.
Assembly 2 Building
It is true that the Assembly 2 building has been renovated to accommodate more classrooms and offices for the incoming MD School.
We have also moved the HPD Computer Lab to the 2nd floor.
The available study rooms in the Library Annex of Assembly 2 has been reduced to thirteen (13) Study Rooms.
Fortunately, these study rooms are also the rooms used for our 24/7 Hours during the semester.
We have found that thirteen (13) rooms are sufficient for the 24/7 and Late night hours.
24/7 & Late Night Study Rooms in the Library Annex of Assembly 2 will continue to be available in the upcoming semesters
Assembly 1 Building
We have added seven (7) brand new Study Rooms in the central hallway of the Assembly 1 building.
We have added ten (10) brand new study rooms in the HPD Library
All combined this equates to adding two (2) more total Study Rooms to the Library’s available spaces.
We have also move much of our Print collections to an archive space in the Alvin Sherman Library.
This has freed up an additional 1,720 sq feet of floor space in the main Library Reading room.
This study space has been fitted with additional electrical outlets. And new furniture will be arriving soon.
Yes, a decision was made to have an armed security guard to protect the property in San Juan after hurricane Maria. We will continue to assess this decision. The security personnel has always had parking spots at the campus. After the storm, they have one additional spot as we have more security personnel assisting with giving out water and supplies to our students; thus, we requested more security personnel to assist us.
The Health Professions Division has the following automatic door operators currently installed throughout the facility:
In addition, our architects are working on proposing additional/future automatic doors as part of new construction projects for the following areas:
This is something that we look at during any renovation/new construction to ensure we meet the needs of our students, faculty and staff. We are always open to suggestions from our NSU community.
At this time, the water in Puerto Rico is not yet safe to consume. NSU has coordinated a number of FedEx shipments from main campus to include perishable items, water and other supplies to the campus. Water has been distributed to students on a daily basis and currently, regional campus administration along with business services are working on establishing a regular bottled water shipment from a local vendor.
In addition to this, NSU is working on installing 2 water filtration units that are expected to be in place early next week and located on the 3rd floor. A similar unit already exists on the 4th floor.
The university is being cautious as we feel that the water coming into to the business complex where the campus is located might not be safe to drink. NSU facilities is working with the campus administration in Puerto Rico to install water filtration units so that students could have safe drinking water ASAP.
The Office of Residential Life and Housing traditionally provided housing for students visiting campus for Residential Institute and it was a delight to host these students on campus. However, with the growth of the undergraduate population we have had to triple and double rooms resulting in the inability to host visiting RI students during the academic year. The Office of Residential Life and Housing works with RI students in identifying local affordable hotels.
