More than 200 students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members participated in the Sept. 13th ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony of NSU’s newest Student Educational Center in Palm Beach Gardens.

NSU President and CEO George L. Hanbury II, Palm Beach Gardens Mayor David J. Levy,  President and CEO of Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce Edward Chase, President, CEO of the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County Kelly Smallridge, Palm Beach SEC Director George Dungee, State Representative Mackenson “Mack” Bernard, State Representative Mark Pafford, NSU’s Chancellor Ray Ferrero, Jr., NSU Trustees Nell McMillan Lewis, Ed.D and Keith A. Brown, NSU’s mascot Razor, as well as several students helped cut the ribbon to celebrate the new four-story 75,000- square foot facility.

“We are excited about expanding our higher educational programs in Palm Beach County, especially in career areas where there is a critical shortage throughout our state and the nation,” said President Hanbury.

NSU has been offering degree programs in Palm Beach County for more than 35 years.  Currently, the Palm Beach Center has more than 1,400 students enrolled in bachelors, masters, doctoral and professional degree programs, including pharmacy, business, education, mental health counseling and school psychology.  NSU programs are in high demand and as a result two new nursing programs, Family Nurse Practitioner master’s degree and Nursing Practice doctorate degree (DNP) programs will be added to the curriculum beginning January 2012. For a list of all educational programs offered, or for additional information about the Center, visit www.nova.edu/palmbeach.

The new facility features 26 classrooms, including four labs. It is equipped with video conferencing capabilities, computer labs, wireless internet connection, a student lounge, a fitness area and other amenities. The Center will be available to host community events and conferences.

The Center hosted an Open House during the grand opening where prospective students met faculty and staff and toured the facility. Stiles Corp. developed the property and built the facility at 11501 North Military Trail.
