“We are proud of our high standing in this year’s Golden Age rankings,” said Dr. George Hanbury, NSU’s President and CEO. “As we continue to position NSU as a preeminent university, our hard work is being recognized by industry leaders who see the value in the NSU Edge.”
The performance indicators that Times Higher Education (THE) Young University Rankings 2020: Golden Age used to rank universities are grouped into five areas: Teaching (the learning environment); Research (volume, income, and reputation); Citations (research influence); International outlook (staff, students and research); and Industry income (knowledge transfer).
As Florida’s largest private research university, NSU has made a splash on the national stage attracting top student talent and bucking the national undergraduate enrollment trend. Enrollment during the last few years has averaged a 21% growth among freshman classes.
In addition, NSU has seen a 400% increase in research revenue for a variety of initiatives during the last five years. More than $107 million in externally provided funding is advancing the university’s mission of research, academic excellence, and public service in the areas of healthcare, biotechnology, life science, pharmaceutical research and more.
The Golden Age Rankings, named to reflect what THE describes as the Golden Age in global higher education, rapid university expansion and increasing investment in research, focuses on universities that were founded after World War II. For the complete list, visit Time Higher Education.
