The President’s Leadership Academy

Transformative Leadership in Community

It is my great pleasure to announce the President’s Leadership Academy, a development program dedicated to recognizing and elevating the skills of our colleagues at Miami Dade College.

The inspiration for this program is embedded in my commitment to making MDC an exceptional place to work, by delivering a culture of care through supporting one another, recognizing excellence, and promoting professional improvement. We live in a rapidly evolving and complex world where it is paramount that we continue to optimize our abilities to serve as leaders in our diverse global community.

My aspiration is that the President's Leadership Academy becomes an annual cohort of leaders who are dedicated to driving transformation in their careers and beyond. I have great optimism and appreciation for what this program will provide for these members of MDC and our community.
