Miami Dade College

Eduardo Padrón, president of Miami Dade College, accepting the 2014 Student Success Award.

“Even before the success and completion agenda became a national conversation, Miami Dade College began a process of defining the skills that students would need to thrive in the 21st century.”

--Eduardo Padrón, President
Miami Dade College

Student success is at the heart of Miami Dade College’s (MDC) mission to change lives through the opportunity of education. With a success rate of greater than 86%, MDC continues to lead the nation in graduating students with associate degrees and in degrees awarded to minorities.

With its nationally-recognized Learning Outcomes initiative, MDC developed more coherent curricular pathways for its students. The college’s Quality Enhancement Plan helped launch a discussion and process for restructuring the developmental education curriculum to ensure the success of every student. In recent years, MDC has enhanced its student supports to help students both inside and outside the classroom.
