The Office of Community Engagement (OCE) works to build effective campus/community partnerships that link external community opportunities to resources within the MICA community. OCE provides tools and resources where they are needed, and supports the creation of best practices and positive outcomes for both MICA and the external community.
Community Engagement Grants provide MICA students, staff, and CAC members with funding to initiate or enhance community engagement projects and activities of their own design. Projects can be curricular or co-curricular, but they must engage a community partner or respond to a compelling community opportunity or need.
The Office of Community Engagement is committed to partnering with faculty to innovate within the curriculum while contributing to the greater knowledge and understanding of the Baltimore community. The Curriculum Enhancement Grant provides up to $1500 in discretionary funding to enrich hands-on learning.
The Y.L. Hoi Memorial Award supports students as creative agents of change in Baltimore. Undergraduate students developing projects that use art and design thinking to create a new paradigm for racial understanding, equity, and harmony.
