Nova Southeastern University
As the nation’s sixth largest independent university, with 26,000 students, a sprawling campus, and presence in nine countries, NSU is the modern embodiment of Thomas Jefferson’s vision of a university as society’s intellectual and cultural hub. By enhancing the physical environment, the University has been able to attract the best students and faculty as well as create thousands of jobs in the local community. The use of unique design elements within an educational campus brought a heightened sense of place and created a new standard in academic environments. The University’s success reflects the design and implementation of a flexible, all encompassing master plan that anticipates and embraces the growth and diversity of the University’s future.
EDSA has been providing master planning, design, and construction administration services for NSU since 1992. Efforts encompass the Medical School, the Business School, the Mailman Segal Institute, the Library, the Family Center Village, Medical Research Center, Transportation Center, Residence Hall, Oceanographic Center and the University Center. Design guidelines were also developed and adapted over the years for the entire University. EDSA continues to update the master plan and plays a strong role in developing the growth of the campus.
