Nova Southeastern University listed in top 20 colleges committed to community service

The school's community service activities gain them big recognition.

Along with this recognition, Nova also recently received The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching’s 2010 Community Engagement Classification. Nova's president, George Hanbury, is just happy to be recognized, and in a recent news release on the Nova website, Chancellor Ray Ferrero states, "Earning these accolades is a testament to NSU's commitment to the community and to volunteerism in general."

There is certainly no shortage of this commitment, and the hard work of Nova Southeastern University will undoubtedly continue to impress.

Nova Southeastern University is a small college located in Fort Lauderdale that was just rated one of the 20 top colleges in the nation committed to community service by Best Colleges Online.

Nova caters mostly to online graduate students and has a total student body of a modest 6,000 undergraduates and 22,500 graduates. But a small size and online-college status has not hindered this university in giving back to the community and truly changing the world.

Nova attests to this feat in the 'Giving' section of their website. Here you can read about the college's more than 1,000 service projects, which range from cancer research to coral reef ecosystem research to rallying dental volunteers for Israel.
