MDC Named ‘Great College’ Once Again

Great Colleges to Work For logo

For the seventh consecutive year, Miami Dade College has been named among the nation’s Great Colleges to Work For by The Chronicle of Higher Education. In addition, MDC once again made the honor roll for recognition in multiple categories. Miami Dade College is the only public higher education institution in Florida named to the list.

“We are humbled and honored to once again receive this recognition,” said Miami Dade College President Dr. Eduardo J. Padrón. “It truly speaks to the faculty and staff at MDC, who are second to none, who make this a great place to work and especially a great place for our students to learn.”

MDC was recognized in eight categories: collaborative governance; confidence in senior leadership, diversity, job satisfaction, professional/career development programs, supervisor/department chair relationships, teaching environment and respect and appreciation.

The Chronicle’s 2015 Great Colleges to Work For program recognizes colleges for specific practices and policies. It has become one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country, serving as higher education’s version of the popular Fortune magazine survey of the 100 best companies to work for throughout the nation.

A major part of the process consisted of a survey completed by a random sample of full-time and adjunct faculty members, administrators and professional support staff.

Other major institutions honored alongside MDC include Duke, Notre Dame and Texas A&M.
