The Students of CLACI

Welcome to CLACI!

Under the guidance of the President of Miami Dade College, Dr. Eduardo Padrón, MDC gave birth to CLACI in 2011 to serve as a proactive hub to foster informative and productive interactions between MDC, Diasporas, and their countries of origin. In the accomplishment of its mission CLACI puts in motion its own initiatives while assisting others with the implementation of projects and ideas that may originate at different instances within MDC, the Diasporas, and at Latin-American and Caribbean institutions.

CLACI is an ingenious open concept. Above any other consideration is an engine to put in motion and coordinate initiatives -of its own or from others- that can only succeed with the full support of MDC as a whole. It develops all its activities based on ad hoc task forces that engage different institutions outside MDC as well as several colleges’ departments.

Excellence is a flowing concept. The ideal of perfection is a useful utopia to be endlessly pursuit though never achieved. We will always have challenges to address. In coming months we look forward to find new ways to further facilitate student’s engagement with CLACI’s activities.
