In January 2006, Dr. Padron signed the Talloires Declaration, a ten-point action plan for incorporating sustainability and environmental literacy in teaching, research, operations and outreach at colleges and universities.

In the summer of 2007, Miami Dade College added environmental sustainability to the Strategic Plan both for academics and facilities. (Link will be added) In the fall of 2007, the College adopted the new Learning Outcome number ten: Describe how natural systems function and recognize the impact of humans on the environment.
