The recent U.S. Presidential campaign election, as well as the resulting media coverage may be raising questions about the future of international students on campuses in the United States.  International education and diversity remain a top priority at NSU, and I want to reassure you that the administration, faculty, and staff at NSU are fully committed to supporting the academic success, safety, and well-being of all of our international students in our diverse campus community.

NSU’s mission, vision, and core values support and underscore the importance of creating a highly engaged and inclusive global community of scholars. Our international students come from 106 countries on six continents and continue to make an important academic and cultural impact. NSU is truly a global community in which we all live and learn from each other in harmony and collaboration. We remain dedicated to helping all of our students reach their potential and develop the global mindset they need to function in a complex and increasingly interdependent world.
