President's Report 2022

INNOVATION AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT NSU’s impact on economic and business development in Florida continues to expand, and a key element for that growth is the Alan B. Levan | NSU Broward Center of Innovation, which opened in fiscal 2022. The cutting-edge Levan Center of Innovation occupies 54,000 square feet at the Fort Lauderdale/Davie Campus and is helping entrepreneurs grow innovative startups into businesses that support our economy locally, nationally, and globally. The Levan Center of Innovation is also home to a military-grade cybersecurity range and partners with the NSU College of Computing and Engineering, which has been designated by the National Security Agency as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity. Its mission will be bolstered by a $742,000, three-year grant awarded to NSU as part of the U.S. Economic Development Administration’s “Build to Scale” program that is designed to accelerate technology entrepreneurship. 8
