Nova Southeastern University (NSU) is a private nonprofit university, with a main campus located on 300 acres (120 ha) in Davie, in the US state of Florida. Formerly referred to as "Nova" and now commonly called "NSU," the university currently consists of 18 colleges and schools offering over 175 programs of study with more than 250 majors. The university offers professional degrees in law, business, osteopathic medicine, allied health, pharmacy, dentistry, optometry, and nursing. Nova Southeastern enrolled 24,148 students in the 2014-2015 academic year,[3] and has produced over 164,000 alumni.[5]

The university was founded as the Nova University of Advanced Technology on a former Naval Outlying Landing Field built during World War II.[6] The university first offered graduate degrees in the physical and social sciences.[7] Leo Goodwin, Sr. left a $16 million bequest to the university in 1971 which funded its expansion throughout the 1970s and 1980s. In 1994, the university merged with the Southeastern University of the Health Sciences and assumed its current name.

NSU is classified as a high research and community engaged university by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.[8] The university is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and also has numerous additional specialized accreditations for its colleges and programs.[9] [10]

The NSU Sharks compete in the NCAA Division II Sunshine State Conference in seventeen intercollegiate athletic programs.

Main Entrance of NSU

The university, originally named Nova University of Advanced Technology, was chartered by the state of Florida on December 4, 1964.[11][12] With an inaugural class of 17 students,[11] the university opened as a graduate school for the social and physical sciences.[13]

The university was originally located on a campus in downtown Fort Lauderdale but later moved to its current campus in Davie, Florida.[14] A portion of the site of this campus was once was a naval training airfield during World War II, called the "Naval Outlying Landing Field Forman."[6] The remnants of the taxiway surrounding the airfield are still present in the form of roads used on the campus.[15] After World War II, the federal government made a commitment to the Forman family, from whom the land was purchased, that the land would only be used for educational purposes.[15] This led the land to be used for the creation of the South Florida Education Center, which includes Nova Southeastern University,[15] as well as Broward College, Florida Atlantic University, McFatter Technical College, and the University of Florida.[16]

On June 23, 1970, the board of trustees voted to enter into a federation with the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT). The president of NYIT, Alexander Schure, Ph.D., became chancellor of Nova University.[17] Abraham S. Fischler became the second president of the university. The university charter was amended and “of Advanced Technology” was dropped from its corporate name. In 1971, Nova University received accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).[9] In 1972, the university introduced its first off-campus course of study in education. In 1974, NSU opened a law school,[18] with an inaugural class of 175 students.[13] The same year, the university began offering evening courses on campus for undergraduates, and changed its name to Nova University. The following year, in 1975, the law school received approval from the American Bar Association.[19] In 1976, the university received a $16 million gift from the estate of Leo Goodwin Sr., and began extensive campus and program expansion.


In 1985, NSU ended its collaboration with New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), and began offering its first online classes.[13] In 1989, enrollment reached 8,000 students, with nearly 25,000 alumni. Revenue approached $70 million[12] and three new buildings were constructed.

By that time, enrollment increased approximately 42 percent; full-time members of the faculty, staff, and administration expanded to almost 2,600; and minority representation among faculty and staff members and students continued to expand.
