Professor of Information Technology Professor Cynthia Ruppel

”I am a proponent of teaching students to learn by themselves and to think and question. With the Internet and so much information in today's world, it is important to be able to determine both relevant and accurate information. With today's communications technologies, the world has become a 'smaller' place.”

Research Facilities

Information services are offered via traditional and technology-driven approaches in the libraries, which are stocked with carefully selected print materials and readily available electronic resources. The NSU libraries are nationally known for their excellent services to distance education students. With its 325,000-square-foot structure, the Alvin Sherman Library, Research, and Information Technology Center is the largest library building in Florida. It is a joint-use facility between the Broward County Board of County Commissioners and NSU, and it is ultramodern in its application of both wireline and wireless technology. The facility has individual study rooms, large conference rooms, exhibit areas, electronic classrooms, a café, and the Rose and Alfred Miniaci 500-seat Performing Arts Center.

The Carl DeSantis Building, home to the H. Wayne Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship, opened its doors in 2004. The design of this state-of-the-art facility includes general-purpose classrooms, compressed video/teleconferencing classrooms, a lecture theater, computer labs, multipurpose facilities, conference facilities, business services/copy center, and a full service café as well as administrative and student offices with support facilities.
