Miami Dade College Foundation engages individuals and organizations to support faculty and teaching initiatives at MDC. Highly credentialed and committed faculty members are crucial to Miami Dade College’s delivery of quality education, and several have been named U.S. Professor of the Year. Students and alumni consistently point to their full-time professors as catalysts to their successes, both in the classroom and beyond. Full-time faculty members offer accessibility and counsel essential to the success of our graduates. Did you have a professor who changed your life? This is a common motivation for giving. Recognize that educator with a gift in his/her name. With increased funding, the Foundation can make further investments in faculty and programming, making more of these transformative faculty-student connections possible.
