The Campus Learning Community and Symposium has grown out of the Faculty Learning Community at Miami Dade College (MDC)'s Padrón Campus and efforts at MDC's North Campus. It now welcomes participants from different campuses and the public via online events and resources.
In recent years, the focus has been on specific Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); in academic year 2019-2020, the theme was Goal 2, and in Spring 2019, the theme was Goal 16. During the 2020-21 academic year, the theme is Goal 11.
Earth Ethics Institute (EEI), Institute for Civic Engagement and Democracy (iCED) and MDC Learning Resources (as part of Changemaking at MDC) have organized and supported this effort, and have coordinated with faculty, students and community partners to facilitate student project presentations, keynote speakers, film screenings, special events, embedded academic service-learning opportunities and more.
