MDC Wins Award for Helping Homeless, Foster Students Miami Dade College has won first place at the 2017 Diversity Abroad Conference to send homeless and foster students from the Educate Tomorrow program abroad. MDC’s Office of International Education is collaborating with the nonprofit organization Educate Tomorrow to get as many as three students to study abroad this summer with plans for more in the future. MDC’s proposal, which garnered the top spot and $3,000, beat out New York University, Washington State University, Syracuse University, Macalester College, University of California Riverside and four other institutions. “It’s a huge honor, and I’m so excited that MDC has started a conversation at the national level to reduce barriers for this community of students to access international education,” said Carol Reyes, director of Global Student Programs at Miami Dade College. Reyes presented the winning proposal to more than 300 people from institutions and organizations from around the world and served as the master of ceremonies for the four-day Diversity Abroad Conference. The annual conference brings together leaders and students to discuss advancing diversity and increasing access to global education for underrepresented groups of students.
