History

1960s

Main Entrance of NSU
Farher West Hall
Originally named Nova University of Advanced Technology, the university was chartered by the state of Floridamarker in 1964 as a graduate institution in the physical and social sciences. The school was renamed Nova University in 1974. After a merger with Southeastern University for Health Sciences in 1994, the university was renamed Nova Southeastern University. The land occupied by the university was previously a naval training airfield during World War II named Forman Field. The remnants of the taxiway surrounding the airfield are still present in the form of roads used on the campus. After World War II, the federal government had promised the Forman family, from whom the land was purchased, that the land would only be used for educational purposes. This led the land to be used for the creation of the South Florida Education Center of which Nova Southeastern University is now a part.

1970s

On June 23, 1970, the board of trustees voted to enter into a federation with the New York Institute of Technologymarker. The president of NYIT, Alexander Schure, Ph.D., became chancellor of Nova University. Abraham S. Fischler became the second president of the university. Also, the university charter was amended and “of Advanced Technology” was dropped from its corporate name. In 1971, Nova University was accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). In 1972, the university introduced its first off-campus course of study in education. In 1974 the school changed its name to Nova University. Along with the name change came other changes, on campus, undergraduate evening programs began for adults, while the law school was opened in 1974. In 1976, the university received a $16 million gift from the estate of Leo Goodwin Sr., and began extensive campus and program expansion. Shortly after this, NSU dissolved its relationship with NYIT and began to create a board of trustees filled by South Florida community leaders, putting the stewardship of Nova back in the hands of its own local board, which is how it remains today.

1980s

Front of Horvitz building
The Nova University that emerged in 1985 was committed to incorporating new educational technologies, made possible by computers and telecommunications, into the teaching and learning process and into its delivery of education. In 1989, celebrating its 25th year, Nova University enrolled more than 8,000 students annually and had nearly 25,000 graduates, with revenues of nearly $70 million. Over the next five years, three new buildings were constructed and a campus-wide beautification campaign added landscaping that greatly changed the look of the campus.

1990s

In 1994, Nova University merged with Southeastern University of the Health Sciences to form Nova Southeastern University (NSU), adding the Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, Pharmacy, Optometry and Allied Health to the university. The university continued its expansion of building projects and added new academic, clinical and community service programs. By 1999, at the 35th anniversary, the university was enjoying an era of sustained growth, facilitated by a healthy infusion of endowment funds and a nearly 1,000-student increase in enrollment between fall 1998 and fall 1999. NSU’s enrollment had 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.
