In 1990, Homestead became the fifth campus of Miami Dade College. It was opened in the historic downtown district of the City of Homestead with the mission to deliver a full range of higher education programs for the Homestead/ Florida City communities. In fulfilling its mission, the campus enhances the community’s capacity to meet cultural and social needs, in turn fostering a stronger sense of community. This togetherness was very important following the devastation of Hurricane Andrew and the closing of the Homestead Air Force Base.

The Wolfson Campus opened in 1970 by holding classes in the storefronts of downtown Miami. With the completion of the campus’ first permanent facility in 1973, Wolfson catalyzed a downtown renaissance by hosting all manner of civic and cultural discourse. It is the only comprehensive urban campus in the city. Located within the city’s financial, governmental, technological and cultural hubs, Wolfson capitalizes on its unique geographic resource by offering programs in banking/financial services, business, computer technology, paralegal studies, architecture, economics, hospitality management, engineering, the arts, humanities and social sciences.
