NSU's Realignment of Academic Programs

As you are probably aware, over the course of the last year and a half, Provost Rogers and I - along with NSU administration and college deans-have been evaluating a new academic structure that we feel could maximize and leverage our fine graduate and professional degree programs to attract even more of the best and brightest undergraduates to Nova Southeastern University. These changes will be seamlessly implemented and will not affect which professors teach you or the classes you take, rather the business structure of the university. The purpose of these changes is to better support our students and help you achieve your academic goals.

As a result, we are creating three colleges, as follows: the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences headed by Honggang Yang, Ph.D.; the College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography headed by Richard (Dick) Dodge, Ph.D.; and the College of Psychology headed by Karen Grosby, Ed.D. Students, faculty and staff in the College of Arts and Sciences have contributed significantly to NSU - and remain integral to our University. The distinct spirit and mission of the College of Arts and Sciences will always be reflected in the core values of this institution.

Two new colleges will also be created. One will allow undergraduates from all disciplines-through select invitation-to be members of an Honors College, to be headed by Don Rosenblum, Ph.D. The second will be a College of Allopathic Medicine (M.D. program) to complement our existing College of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O. program). We have also created a "general engineering" program to help meet the market need for more engineers.

All of the remaining alignments reflect changes in names, from schools, centers and institutes, to colleges. Additionally, programs will be aligned vertically (i.e. bachelor's, master's and doctoral programs in computer science will all be housed in the College of Engineering and Computing, instead of in separate colleges as we have traditionally done).

Recent Questions

What is being done to improve parking lot safety, particularly in several of the NSU garages?

Answer: Many of you have asked about parking lot safety.  As a result, we have engaged a consultant to study the issue and to provide us with recommendations.  We have already completed the following:  We have added several speed bumps in the middle of ramps (where speeds are highest) in order to slow vehicles.  We have also added lighting to darkened areas of the garages.  Additional safety features are under consideration.

I'm a Jacksonville SEC student.  Will you consider having a doctor onsite and/or medical services when needed?

Answer: Each Educational Center has a conveniently located, designated physician who accepts the student health insurance and waives co-pays.  It is not feasible to have a physician on-site.  If you require information about your site's designated physician, you should contact your local program administrator or a Student Affairs coordinator.
