New School at MDC to Train Hispanic LeadersGoberna provides a transformative approach to governing

MDC has established an education program in Spanish for government leaders from Latin America and for Hispanics living in the United States. Goberna Las Americas-Miami School of Good Government, MDC’s new school of government, was created in partnership with the renowned Ortega-Marañon Foundation from Spain.

Goberna will begin its programs in November with an inaugural event titled “Encounter on Democracy and Citizenship.” The event will take place Nov. 13 and 14, 2014, at Wolfson Campus, and will be followed the next week by the beginning of two executive courses on Migration as well as on Citizen Security.

Goberna’s programs, which combine face-to-face courses and distance learning, aim to strengthen the design, management and implementation of policies by analyzing real cases and policy approaches from Latin America and the challenges to Hispanic-related issues in the U.S.  The Ortega – Marañon Foundation is a cultural organization in Spain focused on the social sciences and humanities. It will contribute its vast network of cultural resources and educational services to the new School.

The Goberna Las Americas-Miami School at MDC will be fully operational in February 2015 with a full slate of exciting programs.
