Joe Biden to speak at Miami Dade College commencement


Miami Dade College has announced its upcoming 2014 commencement speakers — a list that includes U.S. Vice President Joe Biden.

Biden will speak at the May 3 graduation ceremony for MDC’s InterAmerican and Homestead campuses. Because of MDC’s massive student body, the college will hold five separate commencement ceremonies on that day. Nearly 15,000 MDC students will be graduating in total.

Speakers at the other commencement ceremonies will include Duke University Richard Brodhead (Kendall campus commencement) and New York University President John Sexton (North and West campuses commencement).
