NSU Core Values

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE Academic excellence is the provision of the highest quality educational and learning
experiences made possible by academically and professionally qualified and skilled instructional faculty and
staff, opportunities for contextual learning, state-of-the-art facilities, beautiful surroundings, and effective
resources necessary to support learning at the highest level. Additionally, academic excellence reflects the
successful relationship between engaged learners and outstanding instructional faculty and staff.

STUDENT CENTERED Students are the focus of institutional priorities, resource decisions, and planning. We
are stewards of student needs and advocates for student academic success and professional development.

INTEGRITY Integrity involves honesty and fairness, consistency in instruction, ethics of scholarship, freedom
of inquiry, and open and truthful engagement with the community through effective communication, policies
and practices.

SCHOLARSHIP/RESEARCH Research and scholarship products are disseminated and evaluated through
intellectual discourse, application, assessment, and other mechanisms of the relevant peer community.

DIVERSITY Diversity includes, but is not limited to, race, ethnicity, culture, religion, philosophy, gender,
physical traits, socioeconomic status, age, and sexual orientation. Differences in views, interpretations, and
reactions derived from diversity are important. Diversity enriches a learning environment focused on preparing
individuals to live and work in a global society.

OPPORTUNITY Opportunity fosters the possibility for anyone associated with NSU to acquire an education
or an educational experience through creative, yet sound, pedagogical programs.

INNOVATION Innovation is the creative and deliberate application of teaching, research, scholarship, and
service for effective education, and the development of useful products or processes providing a value added
to the community.

COMMUNITY NSU is a community of faculty and staff members, students, and alumni who share a common
identity and purpose. Our community extends into professional, intellectual, and geographical domains that
both support and are the focus of our educational mission.

As a professional school, our graduates must have a predictable level of competence across the range of knowledge and skills expected of lawyers. Such competence allows clients, licensing and credentialing authorities, and other interested parties to rely on these competencies. The American Bar Association and state bar associations require some of these competencies; others come from widespread industry practice and expectations in the legal profession, as reported by the National Association for Law Placement and the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System. To achieve these competencies, students at the College of Law must perform various functions either with or without reasonable accommodation consistent with applicable law and must practice and maintain these abilities throughout law school. These competencies are known as Technical Standards.

The page and documents communicate information regarding academic operations for the Fall 2020 term. There are many logistics and specifics regarding full building operations still being considered by our Faculty/Staff Fall 2020 Taskforce, who began work back in April 2020. Please understand that the world we are operating in is constantly in flux. NSU Law administration believes it is important to share this big picture information with you to help you with your planning. We have made these plans under the direction of the University, health and safety guidelines, and student feedback.
