Florida school dedicates Guy Harvey research center

Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale named its newest research facility the Guy Harvey Oceanographic Center.

Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale named its newest research facility the Guy Harvey Oceanographic Center because of Harvey’s support of the university’s scholarship, research and conservation of marine life.

The official naming ceremony was to be held today at the Oceanographic Center in John U. Lloyd State Park. Expected attendees include Harvey; George L. Hanbury, president and CEO of the university; and university trustees, students, faculty and staff.

“Nova Southeastern University has had a long-standing relationship with Dr. Harvey, and we’re thrilled that will continue for many more years to come,” Hanbury said in a statement. “His generosity is ensuring today’s leaders in marine sciences teach and pass on their expertise to tomorrow’s researchers. I am very pleased that Guy Harvey is putting his name — literally — on the growing legacy of our Oceanographic Center.”

"I am honored to have my name on such a high-profile building in South Florida that is doing cutting-edge marine science research," Harvey said. "It is the latest and most significant step in an incredible partnership with NSU that began 16 years ago. And it is my hope that the work that will be done in the future in this building will make a significant difference in the lives of many individuals and the conservation of our oceans’ resources.”
