Keiser University’s Miami campus, formerly located in Kendall, held its grand opening March 30 that formally opened its new three-story building at 2101 NW 117 Avenue in Doral at the Crossroads in Dolphin Commerce Center.
The 90,000 square foot structure with full wireless technology replaces a former 28,000 square-foot building at Kendall’s Town & Country Center.
Altogether with three parking decks, the Keiser campus has ‘grown’ to 140,000 square feet housing a professional business institution that saw more than 100 celebrate the opening event, including representatives from Congressmen Mario Diaz Balart and David Rivera.
Keiser University offers degrees in key workforce areas such as the S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields and brings an improved learning environment to the South Florida higher education community. Technological advantages at this new facility will help to more effectively serve the needs of the student population at the Miami campus, according to Dr. Arthur Keiser, Chancellor.
“We are extremely pleased to have worked with Procacci Development Corporation on constructing a facility that will allow this campus to expand its high-demand program offerings in order to continue serving the community and its employers,” he said.
As a leader in workforce education, degrees offered by Keiser include such high-demand fields as health care, business, computer technology and criminal justice disciplines. To provide a state-of-the-practice learning environment, the new campus is equipped with modern medical labs including a dissection/microbiology lab, computer labs and a fully computerized auditorium that can seat over 100 people.
Keiser University is a private, not-for-profit, Level V SACS accredited university serving approximately 18,000 students seeking doctoral, masters, bachelors and associate degrees in over 60 programs.
Now in its 35th year serving Florida, the University holds top national and state rankings in production of associate degree graduates in health professions and related sciences, including nursing, and over 60 percent of students annually graduate.
Keiser University is comprised of 14 campuses throughout Florida, a Graduate School and a nationally recognized College of Golf. The University’s educational reach extends internationally through a Latin Division, the Eastern European nation of Moldova, and a branch campus in Shanghai, China.
