South Dade Technical College’s mission is to “Guide and prepare learners in attaining their highest academic goals and competency levels to qualify them for initial employment and/or career advancement.” To that end, the faculty and staff are committed to providing high-quality educational programs and services for our adult learners. I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you on both the South Dade Technical College Homestead and South Dade Skills Center campuses for the 2016-2017 school year. The administration, faculty, and staff want to reassure you that we are here to provide you with the support you need to successfully reach your educational goals.
This year, we will maintain our focus on providing excellent academic and Career and Technical Education programs. These programs will prepare our students to meet their goals and be more competitive in the workforce. Under our current Council of Occupational Education (COE) accreditation, Career and Technical Education (CTE) program completers will be recognized as having met the highest standards in their field. This will allow us to further assist our students in obtaining federal financial aid. Join us as we work together to meet the challenges of global competitiveness by actively helping our students gain the skills, technical knowledge, rigorous academic foundation, and real-life experiences they need for high-skill, high-demand, high-wage careers.
