Academic Leaders Council

The Academic Leaders Council (ALC) provides a forum for dialogue and cooperation among the largest Miami-based colleges and universities, along with Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS). The presidents of Barry University, Florida International University, Florida Memorial University, Miami Dade College, St. Thomas University, and the University of Miami are joined by the Superintendent of MDCPS for quarterly meetings where they discuss challenges and opportunities within Miami-Dade’s educational environment and work together to develop programs to address them.
 

The Talent Development Network (TDN) is one of these projects. Born from the institutions’ shared need to increase the number of internship opportunities for their students, TDN is an online platform that connects employers with students looking for internships. Employers have the advantage of having their internship posting reach students from seven different educational institutions via one centralized portal, while students have the advantage of exploring opportunities submitted by OCOG partners throughout the community including both the public and private sectors.

In addition to the portal, TDN hosts a series of workshops and events, including CEO for a Day. For more information on the Talent development Network and its programs, visit TDNMiami.com.
