Keiser University is a private, not-for-profit university system with 17 locations throughout Florida. With its main campus based in Fort Lauderdale, the Keiser family created the school after recognizing a need for hands-on career education in a small classroom setting. The school opened its doors in 1977 and was originally named the Keiser School. Since then, it has gone through several name changes, including the Keiser Institute of Technology and Keiser College. In 2006, the school was rebranded Keiser University, the name it keeps today. Keiser University offers associate, bachelor's, master's, Ed Specialist, and doctoral degrees.

The university is accredited through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
