President's Welcome Message

Welcome to NSU Florida!

NSU Florida is at the heart of South Florida’s academic and research hub, and just minutes from some of the world’s best beaches.  With campuses in Greater Fort Lauderdale, throughout Florida and in Puerto Rico, we give you the edge to succeed in your career and in your life.  We are 21,000 students strong with a network of 190,000+ alumni around the world.  NSU Florida Sharks swim in your corner.

NSU’s diverse undergraduate programs all serve as a conduit into fulfilling careers as well as our more than 100 graduate and professional programs.  NSU boasts a strong health professions division, and our unique dual-admit program for undergraduate students is great for those who wish to pre-apply to our nationally-ranked graduate and professional programs.  From business to education, psychology and the health care sciences, medicine, law, computer sciences and marine biology, NSU is the best choice to pursue your education.

We are proud to be classified by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as one of only 59 universities out of more than 4,000 that have the dual designation of both “high research” and “community engaged.”  Our faculty and student researchers are changing the world in areas such as coral reef preservation, cancer drug therapies, autism, neuro-immune medicine, and many others.  And our students, faculty and staff give back to the community each year through approximately 2,000 community events.  NSU is committed to providing the highest quality faculty in small classroom environments where experiential education is key to the learning process.

I invite you to take a few minutes to discover NSU. Our virtual campus map will give a feeling of what it’s like on our stunning campus in sunny Fort Lauderdale. Even better, if you’re in town, stop on by for a personal tour.

Go Sharks!
