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
