HistoryEdit

  • 1959-1973: Miami Dade College was established in 1959 and opened in 1960 as Dade County Junior College. The original campus was located at the recently built Miami Central High School. The campus consisted of a portion of the school and an adjacent farm. In 1960, a facility was built on an old naval air station near Opa-Locka Airport (known as Master Field), which is now the college's North Campus.[8] The college enrolled African American students and Cuban exiles who could not afford to go to other schools, any schools for that matter, became Florida's first integrated junior college. Dade County Junior College opened for classes in fall 1960 with two mostly segregated campuses, one for 1,200 white students at the Central Campus and the other for 185 blacks at Northwestern. The initial separation of blacks and whites reflected the persistence of segregation in Florida's public schools, despite being ruled unconstitutional nationwide in 1954 by the U.S. Supreme Court decision Brown v. Board of Education. Today, however, MDC serves as a model of multiracial democracy—defined as “a goal for a nation founded on the principle of human equality”[9] As the college grew, a temporary satellite campus opened in what is known today as Pinecrest at Miami Palmetto High School until the new South Campus (later Kendall Campus) was built in Kendall; Later renamed Miami-Dade Junior College. By 1967 Dade County Junior College was one of the largest growing educational institutions, enrolling more students than the University of Miami, Florida State University combined. After some time, the college board of directors' chairman Mitchell Wolfson envisioned a campus at the heart of downtown Miami, and in 1973, the Wolfson Campus was built. The college changed its name to Miami-Dade Community College around the same time.
  • 1980-1990s: The college initially implemented an open admissions policy, meaning anyone who could afford classes was allowed to enroll. Because of this, the focus of the college became strengthening its academics. As a result, the Medical Center was built near Miami's Civic Center adjacent to the University of Miami Jackson Memorial Hospital to train students in Allied Health and Nursing (RN) programs. With the Mariel exile community arriving in 1980, the College created an outreach center in Hialeah to give incoming refugees educational opportunities. Another outreach center, the InterAmerican center, was built to accommodate bilingual education. The Homestead Campus was built in 1990 in Homestead to relieve the concerns of students having to drive to the Kendall Campus In Miami. In the mid-1990s, the college began to rely heavily on the Miami Dade College Foundation as the Florida legislature reduced the state's education budget. The college also had to figure out new ways of recruiting students and it began its "Successful Alumni" campaign in the late 1990s, marketing the success of the college's alumni to local prospective students.
  • 2000's: Beginning in 2001, the college implemented a strategic plan to revamp the college and its recruiting goals. In 2002, the college disbanded its Honors Program and created The Honors College for talented high school graduates. The Honors College is a representation of Miami Dade College's most academically-gifted students in different fields and was originally based on the three larger campuses (Wolfson, Kendall, and North).In 2006, Miami Dade College surpassed 1.5 million students enrolled throughout its history.[10] In 2007, The Honors College expanded into the InterAmerican Campus with The Honors College Dual Language Honors Program to tailor to the needs of the growing Spanish-speaking population in the United States as well as abroad. The Dual Language Honors Program opened its doors to bilingual students who wish to continue their careers with professional fluency in the English and Spanish languages. In 2009, The MDC Honors College Dual Language Program earned the merit of Innovation of the Year in the Learning and Teaching Department from the League for Innovation.[11] In 2018, Miami Dade was awarded and recognized for its path to economic and social mobility by the Aspen Institute. The award received was the $1 million Aspen Prize.[12]

On February 1, 2019, Eduardo Padron, Miami Dade College President, announced that he plans to retire from the position he has held since 1995.[13] Miami Dade College is been ranked number one since 2013 for the colleges[14] in South Florida that received the most enrollment for every semester.
