NSU creates New Colleges and Programs

NSU has created three new colleges and programs, adding to the university's more than 150 degree offerings. The university will establish a College of Allopathic Medicine (M.D. program) to complement NSU's College of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O. program), a College of Engineering and Computing, and an undergraduate Farquhar Honors College.

These additions are being made with input from students, faculty and staff for the benefit of current and prospective students and to meet the growing demand and unmet need of providing qualified physicians and engineers to the community and the nation.

NSU's College of Allopathic Medicine
The new College of Allopathic Medicine will help meet the growing need of osteopathic (D.O.) and allopathic (M.D.) physicians nationally and regionally. It also will complement the education currently offered in NSU's College of Osteopathic Medicine along with the university’s extensive offerings of health professions degree programs. NSU will be the only university in the Southeastern United States and the first in Florida to house both an osteopathic medical school and an allopathic medical school.

NSU's College of Engineering and Computing
The new College of Engineering and Computing will combine the Ph.D. and master's degree programs formerly housed in the Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences, and bachelor's degree programs across computer science, engineering, and information sciences from the College of Arts and Sciences. The college will offer a new bachelor of science in general engineering that will begin fall 2016.

NSU's Farquhar Honors College
The undergraduate Farquhar Honors College will be comprised of students who meet high academic standards including those who are also part of certain highly competitive scholarship programs. Students who complete the Honors College programs will receive special acknowledgement on their diplomas and transcripts and at commencement ceremonies.

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.
