Hurricane Dorian: How Can I Help?

Disaster Recovery

Hurricane Dorian hit close to home for the NSU community. Loss of life, property and a sense of community can isolate us and also bring us together. As the destruction in The Bahamas is assessed, NSU stands ready to assist our students, staff and alumni, and the greater Bahamian community, as well as those in Florida and the Southeast U.S who may have been affected.

At President Hanbury’s request we are coordinating relief efforts university-wide. Learn about ways you can help and items that are needed here:



The NSU CARES fund helps students and employees who are most in need of assistance. Please consider donating or volunteering your time to help impacted individuals return to a sense of normalcy, in these most difficult times.
