More than 15,000 MDC Students Earned Degrees During the 2019-20 Academic Year

Miami, Dec. 1, 2020 – More than 15,000 graduates from Miami Dade College’s (MDC) eight campuses earned degrees during the 2019-20 academic school year, demonstrating unwavering dedication and hard work as they completed their studies amid a global pandemic. A portion of those students will receive their diplomas at five Commencement Ceremonies on Saturday, Dec. 12.

The ceremonies will be held outdoors at the Kendall and North Campuses with limited capacity and strict social distancing protocols in place, including temperature checks upon entering the campus, mandatory face masks at all times, and hand sanitizing stations throughout. Only graduates receiving their diplomas, College Trustees, and select faculty and administrators may attend. Families and friends of graduates may watch the ceremonies via live stream at www.mdc.edu/livestream.

The Class of 2020 represents 167 nations. They are game-changers, many already making significant impacts in their communities and intent on addressing some of the world’s most pressing issues through scientific research, health care, international relations, technology, entrepreneurship, business development, and much more.

“From class lectures to social and academic clubs, Miami Dade College has shown me a sense of unity and constructive support within its grounds. When one falls, there will always be someone there to extend a hand,” said biology major and Wolfson Campus graduate Elba Garcia. “Having adopted this new approach to community-impact ideas helped me academically succeed at MDC, but it will also become an essential trait as an aspiring surgeon and engaged global citizen.”
