The recent grand opening of a new Downtown Miami Branch Campus of Universidad Mayor signifies Nexus University as a higher learning institution that supports working professionals seeking a higher education degree.

With a systemwide enrollment of 23,000 students, Universidad Mayor is a private, non-profit university headquartered in Santiago, Chile, regionally accredited in the U.S. by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE).

The Nexus University brand is part of Universidad Mayor’s strategic expansion into the global educational community. The university provides programs focused on niche fields in high demand by the current markets.

Nexus University executive director Yamil Guevara, PhD, hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony at their new location at 111 NE first Street, third floor, with the support of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce.

“Today we are excited to announce Nexus University will have a positive impact on the Miami-Dade community,” Dr. Guevara said.

With classes starting on May 6, 2019, Nexus University offers affordable tuition and flexible online programs that include hands-on programs in Python, R, and SAS programming; business, and nursing.

Also addressing the gathering were Miami Mayor Francis Suarez; Dr. Janie Bailey, director of the School of Health Sciences & Nursing, and Dawn Lawson, MSC, MHA, girector of enrollment.

Lawson stated the university was particularly gratified that Mayor Suarez helped cut the ceremonial ribbon.

“We appreciate that you chose to spend this time with us and we accept it as an indication that you will be a lifelong partner with Nexus University,” she said.

“It’s true that for a nation to succeed, the desire to educate its people should be the compass that charts its direction. We look forward to your leadership, Mayor Suarez, in this area,” Lawson added.

Dr. Guevara also expressed gratitude to Alfred Sanchez, president and CEO of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce.

“Your role in harnessing the collective influence of businesses and organizations for the good of the community is invaluable – and we thank you.”

“We aim to form partnerships with organizations in the business and healthcare sectors, supporting working professionals seeking to expand their knowledge and advance their careers through a higher education degree,” Dr. Guevara added.

A core mission of Nexus University is to create ethical leaders who value diversity and who want to give back to their community.

“We want our students to understand that education is a lifelong journey,” Dr. Guevara continued. “And a big part of education is how you are connecting to the people around you— in your community — and how willing and able you are to use your center of influence to make positive change.”

As such, Nexus University encourages students and staff to get involved in the community. In fact, Nexus University offers several scholarships to students each year who seek to positively impact their communities.
