One Community One Goal's Academic Leaders Council Transitions Into New Leadership

March 14, 2017

Miami-Dade County School Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho is new chairman 

(Miami, FL) March 14, 2017 – Miami-Dade Beacon Council’s One Community One Goal (OCOG) announces that Miami-Dade County School Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho is the new chairman of the Academic Leaders Council (ALC).  The OCOG ALC was created to develop a world-class educational ecosystem that aligns with the business community to ensure worker availability and to ensure that skill sets keep pace with business needs.

Carvalho, who will serve a two-year term, succeeds the ALC’s inaugural chairman, Florida International University President Mark B. Rosenberg, who had served in that position since 2014. Rosenberg spearheaded the launch of the council and led some of the ALC’s greatest outcomes. These include the creation of the Talent Development Network, an internship platform that is helping build an internship culture in Miami-Dade County and the Catalog of Academic Offerings, which demonstrates the emphasis the seven ALC institutions have put into bridging the gap between academia and industry.

“At FIU, we understand that we have a responsibility to our community and that joining forces with other anchor institutions expands the breadth and depth of our impact,” said Rosenberg. “I am very grateful for the opportunity to lead such a distinguished group of leaders who have committed to our community and the OCOG vision.  What we have been able to do as part of the ALC is unprecedented and I am looking forward to a new era and many successes under the new leadership. “

Carvalho is considered one of the most prominent school superintendents in the country and has been the recipient of numerous state and national awards due to his leadership in transforming the 4th largest school system in the US into one of the country’s highest performing districts.  He is a nationally recognized expert on education transformation, finance and leadership development.

“The key to the future prosperity of Miami-Dade County lies in our education system. I look forward to building on the successes of the ALC and to continue our collaboration to drive key initiatives and further build a world-class educational ecosystem in Miami-Dade County,” Carvalho said.   

University of Miami President Julio Frenk has been selected to be the ALC’s Chair-elect. Dr. Frenk, a former Harvard dean, is the sixth President of the University of Miami and holds academic appointments as Professor of Public Health Sciences at the Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine and as Professor of Health Sector Management and Policy at the School of Business Administration. 

“We want to thank President Rosenberg for his outstanding service, dedication, and tenacity as chairman of the OCOG ALC since its launch. His leadership has been pivotal to the success of the ALC,” said Miami-Dade Beacon Council Chairman Jaret L. Davis. “We are also fortunate to have two innovative, highly recognized educational leaders step into the roles of chair and chair-elect. Their unmatched leadership experience will help develop our community-wide strategic plan to grow our educational ecosystem.”

Education is the foundation of OCOG and the OCOG ALC been established to create an educational ecosystem that aligns with the business community to ensure worker availability and that skill sets keep pace with business needs. 

“A significant differentiator of OCOG is the extraordinary involvement of the Academic Leaders Council,” said Interim President & CEO of the Miami-Dade Beacon Council Sheldon T. Anderson. “Their collaboration is giving Miami-Dade County a competitive advantage.”

Members of the ALC include: 

  • Barry University President Sister Linda Bevilacqua
  • Florida International University President Mark B. Rosenberg
  • Florida Memorial University President Roslyn Clark Artis
  • Miami Dade College President Eduardo J. Padrón
  • Miami-Dade, County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho
  • St. Thomas University President Msgr. Franklyn M. Casale
  • University of Miami President Julio Frenk

Miami-Dade Leads the State in Annual Job Growth in Education and Health Services

March 14, 2017

Miami-Dade County had the highest annual job growth in education and health services (8,100 jobs) compared to other metro areas in Florida from January 2016 to January 2017, according to statistics released March 10.

“Education and health services provide above-average paying wages,” said Jaap Donath, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Research & Strategic Planning for the Miami-Dade Beacon Council. “We also gained more than 5,000 jobs in professional services which include jobs within our target industries like creative design, life sciences and tech. The One Community One Goal initiative continues to help grow high-paying jobs in Miami-Dade.”

The numbers analyzed

Miami-Dade County created 31,800 new nonagricultural payroll jobs (not seasonally adjusted), from January 2016 to January 2017 which was a 2.8 percent increase. Miami-Dade County continues to show year over year gains. Improvements in the non-farm payroll jobs can be found in a variety of sectors. Between December 2016 and January 2017, Miami-Dade County decreased nonagricultural payroll jobs by 11,300 or 1.0 percentage point.

The not seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for Miami- Dade County was 5.1 in January 2017, which was a 0.2 percentage point decrease from January 2016 at 5.3 percent, and 0.3 percentage point decrease from December 2016 at 5.4 percent.

In January 2017, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for Miami-Dade County (taking seasonal fluctuations in the labor force into consideration) was 5.5 percent, which is the same as December 2016.

From the data and analysis above, we see continued improvement in the local economy. Nevertheless, the community needs to remain focused on job-creation projects in targeted industries. These industries have been identified as the Miami-Dade County industries most able to create additional well-paying job opportunities, leading to an improved quality of life for Miami-Dade County residents. The Miami-Dade Beacon Council continues to aggressively work on attracting new companies to our community and work on the expansion and retention of existing business. For more information, visit www.beaconcouncil.com.

The job creation numbers are derived from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Current Employment Statistics Program (CES), and only account for non-farm payroll jobs. However, the unemployment rates are derived from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Local Area Unemployment Statistics Program (LAUS), which includes farm payroll jobs as well as self-employed workers.

In addition, the federal government typically conducts interviews in sample households to determine the unemployment rate. Miami-Dade County is one of six metropolitan areas in the United States that uses a different method solely based on a statistical model derived from several data sets.

* The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate is unavailable at the time this report was composed.
