Beyond funding scholarships, the Foundation engages donors to support overall student achievement. Since 52% of students are the first in their family to attend college, Miami Dade College has reengineered its academic support structure and culture to increase student completion rates while maintaining an open-door policy. Recruitment teams visit Miami-Dade County high schools with a particular emphasis on those with large populations of at-risk students.
Programs include orientation, advising, cognitive and non-cognitive diagnostics, career interest assessments, and a thorough review of a student’s life circumstances. This holistic approach is designed to keep students engaged through the attainment of a credential.
