2022 NSU Fact Book


2022 FACT BOOK 1 The 30th edition of the Nova Southeastern University (NSU) Fact Book provides perspective on the university’s character, growth, and accomplishments. The 2022 Fact Book includes narrative, numeric, and graphic representation of the university, including history, characteristics, and development of the institution. Data are presented in both tabular and graphic formats to provide pertinent detail, and general trends are highlighted. Like all previous editions of the Fact Book, this edition is a snapshot of the university during the academic year that concludes in the year of its publication. Therefore, the 2022 Fact Book represents NSU from fall 2021 through spring 2022, unless otherwise noted. Academic year 2021–2022 began in a time when CDC guidelines around COVID-19 safety allowed for the resumption of face-to-face instruction at full capacity within the classroom, with all students and faculty wearing masks. The BlendFlex model used throughout 2020–2021 was mostly removed in favor of face-to-face courses. Throughout the 2021–2022 academic year, NSU’s experts applied changing CDC guidelines to our campus operations, removing some precautions in times of less risk and implementing precautions as risk increased with new variants of COVID-19. NSU’s internal and external institutional stake- holders regularly consult the Fact Book. It is referenced when compiling data and information for funding proposals or responding to the planning, budgeting, and governmental compliance requirements of the university. It serves as an official record of NSU’s institutional status and progress during a given period. Versions of the Fact Book produced over the last decade provide a vital record for purposes of tracking and monitoring progress toward institutional excellence. Appreciation is extended to the institutional effectiveness staff members who produced the content, to our partners in the academic and administrative units for their updates and reviews of relevant sections, and to the executive administration for their thorough review of the Fact Book. We hope that you find NSU’s Fact Book useful and informative. Don Rudawsky, Ph.D. Vice President for Institutional Effectiveness FOREWORD u

6 NOVA SOUTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY Dear Friends of NSU, Since 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for the world and for Nova Southeastern University. As the world adapted to this crisis, so did we—positively! Thanks to our safety protocols, physical and environmental modifications, and vaccination reporting tools, we were able to resume traditional, in-person classroom learning for the fall 2021 semester. Although new COVID-19 variants have required further adaptation, I am pleased to see that all our students and faculty and staff members are doing their part to protect our Shark community. The pandemic has not stopped new students from coming to NSU. In fall 2021, the university welcomed 2,000 incoming undergraduate students, nearly matching our all-time record for new undergraduate students from 2020. These numbers show that our next generation of doctors, nurses, engineers, business leaders, psychologists, lawyers, educators, artists, and more, all want to start their careers with an exceptional NSU education. Our achievements have not gone unnoticed. NSU has continued to advance upward in the college rankings compiled by U.S. News & World Report. The more we all achieve, the more the world will come to recognize that NSU is growing into a preeminent institution that gives students the edge they need to be successful in their careers. The NSU Shark family has accomplished much in the last year, but there is so much more ahead of us. Sharks always keep swimming forward! Fins Up! George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D. President and CEO Nova Southeastern University MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT u


8 NOVA SOUTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY N ova Southeastern University (NSU) is a private, not-for-profit, accredited, coeducational university. It is Carnegie-classified as both a high research activity and community engaged university. It was founded in 1964 as Nova University of Advanced Technology. In 1974, the board of trustees changed the university’s name to Nova University. In 1994, Nova University merged with Southeastern University of the Health Sciences to form Nova Southeastern University. Using 2020 fall term enrollment as a measure (the latest data available in IPEDS), Nova Southeastern University is the largest private, nonprofit institution of higher education in Florida with a Carnegie Classification as a High Research Institution. Nationally, NSU is also the 24th largest university with that Carnegie classification. Additionally, in fall 2020 NSU was the 16th largest fouryear, not-for-profit, private institution classified by Carnegie as either High or Very High Research Activity in the United States. The university awards bachelor’s, master’s, specialist, doctoral, and first-professional degrees in a wide range of fields, including the humanities, biological and environmental sciences, business, counseling, computer and information sciences, conflict resolution, education, couple and family therapy, medicine, dentistry, various health professions, law, marine sciences, performing and visual arts, psychology, and other social sciences. Nova Southeastern University has the only college of optometry in Florida, and one of only two colleges of pharmacy in South Florida. The university’s programs are administered through colleges that offer courses at the Fort Lauderdale/ Davie Campus, as well as at locations throughout Florida, in Puerto Rico, nationally, and in three other countries. In addition to the geographic diversity of sites where classes are offered, Nova Southeastern University is a major provider of educational programs for Florida residents. In fall 2021, 72 percent of the student body participated in face-to-face courses, with 76 percent of those attending in Fort Lauderdale/Davie, Florida. Additionally, 28 percent of students participated in courses at one of NSU’s regional campuses. With an annual operating budget in excess of $600 million, Nova Southeastern University has a significant economic impact, with a primary presence in the state of Florida. Through its undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs, NSU educated more than 12,000 Florida students in fall 2021. Nova Southeastern University had a $4.1 billion direct economic impact throughout Florida during fiscal year 2020–2021. With numerous funded projects currently in the pipeline at the Fort Lauderdale/Davie and Tampa Bay Regional campuses, it is expected that, by 2025, our economic impact throughout Florida will exceed $5 billion.

It was the first university in the United States to offer graduate programs in an online format, with the creation of the electronic classroom. NSU has been offering online programs and programs with an online component since 1983. NSU was also the first to use the Unix system to host online courses, and one of the first to use the Internet to support instruction. Some programs use a blended instructional approach with face-to-face instruction coupled with online resources and video components. Others use an on- line course area exclusively. Some graduate programs require students to attend short, intensive instructional units on campus (doctoral studies orientation, summer “institutes,” or a summer conference) as a part of their required program of study. Distance education students have access to educational support services, including the NSU libraries at nova.edu/community/libraries.html, technology support via a help desk, educational resources via electronic classrooms and the Internet, and computing resources on our Fort Lauderdale/Davie Campus and at regional campuses located in Florida and Puerto Rico. NSU students can participate in online courses from any location in the world with an Internet connection. Online courses use a web-based instructional platform as a centralized location for educational materials, course content, and communication—both synchronous and asynchronous. The online course platform enables a wide range of online activities that facilitate frequent student-teacher and student-student interaction. Faculty members and students interact in discussion forums via threaded bulletin boards, via real-time electronic classrooms that support graphical presentations and audio, and through online submission of assignments in multimedia formats. NSU provides an email address and a directory for publishing assignments and resources to the Web for all students and faculty members. The Electronic Library provides access to online databases, many of which contain fulltext documents. The development and implementation of distance education programs have become increasingly common as many colleges and universities have moved to the online venue. Nova Southeastern University has more than 40 years of experience in the development, delivery, and evaluation of distance education programs that have been used as models by other schools. Distance education students attend classes at times and places that are convenient to the learner—reflecting the mission of NSU. The variety of distance education experiences, coupled with the use of appropriate instructional technologies, provide a successful learning environment. TECHNOLOGY INFRASTRUCTURE The university maintains an extensive information technology network for teaching and learning, research, and administrative computing. NSU provides a comprehensive network that provides redundancy and resiliency to all our students and faculty and staff members. We have an extensive University Facilities

2022 FACT BOOK 17 fiber optic network that allows all the university’s campuses the ability to communicate with each other. We have also built a high-speed backup network for most of the regional campuses. The NSU wireless network provides our students with wireless connectivity across all the campuses. NSU is an equity member of the Florida LambdaRail (FLR), a not-for-profit, limited liability corporation composed of public and private, not-for-profit Florida universities. The FLR operates a statewide, high- performance, fiber-optic network infrastructure that utilizes next-generation network technologies, protocols, and services. The FLR provides NSU with high-speed commercial Internet services and connectivity to advanced regional and national networks, such as the National LambdaRail (NLR) and the Abilene Internet2 backbone. The FLR has significantly enhanced university research and distance-education capabilities and allows NSU faculty and staff members, researchers, and students to collaborate with colleagues around the world on leading-edge research projects and social science areas. Students and faculty and staff members have access to university computing resources including desktop and laptop computers and document printers and copiers. Numerous computer labs are conveniently located throughout the university’s facilities for student use. Administrative computing resources for students and faculty and staff members at all campuses are distributed between two data centers and enterprise cloud providers. The university’s administrative operations are supported by Ellucian Banner, an enterprise resource planning system (ERP) specialized for higher education institutions. Additional enterprise administrative systems that support the university’s operations include document imaging systems, campus card and POS (point of sale) systems, building management and facilities systems, employee time/effort, procurement systems, and an electronic medical records system (EMR) for health care operations and services. Microsoft 365 provides collaboration tools and communication services for all our students, faculty and staff members, and alumni. Electronic classrooms and microcomputer labs provide hands-on technology support for students and faculty members. Multimedia technology training labs support technology-training opportunities for NSU’s faculty and staff. All NSU campuses and classrooms in Florida, Puerto Rico, and Colorado have videoconferencing capabilities to bring the NSU community together virtually, regardless of physical location. NSU campuses can be linked together via videoconferencing with students off campus to form a global classroom. This extends the reach of NSU beyond the walls of our campuses. The university is currently transitioning from traditional Hard Codec IP videoconferencing to a PC Based Soft Codec videoconferencing model that is compatible with any soft codec solution. This transition will be complete as of June 2022, providing Soft Codec videoconferencing capability between all NSU campuses and classrooms. Desktop and mobile device videoconferencing units are located at clinical and internship sites and in the homes of students enrolled in the speech-language pathology and audiology doctoral programs. To further augment the libraries’ print materials and online databases, the Office of Educational Technologies and Media Services has an extensive collection of other media. A digital media production studio houses tools for the creation of instructional, informational, and marketing media.
