Nova Southeastern University State Accountability Data. Indicators of Quality, Productivity, Diversity and Access. Research and Planning Report 99-10.
Atherton, Blair
This report on Nova Southeastern University (NSU) fulfills a requirement by the state of Florida for participation in an accountability process. Data is presented for three broad categories: student demographics; faculty measures, including demographics, undergraduate teaching loads, contact with undergraduates, and analysis of undergraduate class size; and bachelor's degree completion, including demographics of degree recipients, six-year graduation rates for first-time full-time college freshmen, three-year graduation rates of associate of arts transfer students, and data on accumulated debt of four-year graduates. The report identified three areas of strength for NSU: (1) small undergraduate class size, (2) efficient progression to bachelor's degree completion: first-time full-time undergraduates graduated in a mean of 4.1 years, and (3) all students transferring to NSU with associate degrees from state community colleges were able to enroll in their major of choice in space-limited fields of study in the state university system. In addition, NSU awarded bachelor's degrees to students from racial/ethnic minorities at a proportionately higher rate than for all state higher education institutions as a group, and three-year graduation rates of full-time associate of arts transfer students often exceeded those for other state institutions. Appended is a list of total enrollments at independent colleges and universities in Florida. (JM)
