Please accept my warmest welcome to Miami Dade College. As a bedrock of the richly diverse South Florida community, Miami Dade College (MDC) sustains an accepting environment that has singularly impressive results. Leading the nation in awarding degrees and serving the most minority students, MDC is nationally recognized as the largest and one of the best colleges in America.

The College is state-supported and governed by a seven-member District Board of Trustees plus the College president.
