University opens new regional campus in Puerto Rico

The new Nova Southeastern University (NSU) regional campus in San Juan, Puerto Rico

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Nova Southeastern University (NSU) is set to reconfirm its commitment to Puerto Rico with the grand opening of a new regional campus in San Juan. The new campus represents an expansion of offerings at NSU and also provides increased opportunities for students university-wide.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was scheduled at the new campus on Thursday, to celebrate the opening of a new four-story, state-of-the-art building. NSU will be offering master's and doctoral degrees in pharmacy and education at the new campus. The new regional campus will have an estimated $27 million economic impact on the island this fiscal year alone.

"Nova Southeastern University is committed to helping educate residents of San Juan so they get a quality education leading to good jobs, and allowing them to do so without leaving their families," said George L. Hanbury II, PhD, president and CEO of Nova Southeastern University. "It also brings with it a tremendous opportunity for students from the mainland seeking upper level degrees in pharmacy and education to spend time living and studying in a beautiful Caribbean location."

The facility is equipped with more than 37,000 sq. ft. of classrooms, state-of-the-art technology, computer labs, videoconferencing, a multi-purpose room, drug information center, a wet lab, offices and a fitness center to name a few.

Diverse methods of course delivery for students at the San Juan Campus will mirror those of the main campus in Ft Lauderdale-Davie, Florida and include face-to-face, online, and blended formats.

Andres Malave, MS, PhD, executive director of the NSU San Juan campus, stressed that NSU has a nearly 40-year history with Puerto Rico, serving students of Puerto Rico who attended class on the university's main campus. NSU offered instructional opportunities on the island starting in 1995 as a result of changes in pharmaceutical requirements (Pharm.D.). Currently more than 350 pharmacy and education students are enrolled at NSU in Puerto Rico.

"Our students will benefit from this new campus through opportunities to obtain masters and doctorate degrees in the areas of education and pharmacy with the same quality of education from a top university without having the significant economic impact that comes along with studying abroad," Malave said.
