Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Globalization

We at MICA envision a better world for everyone in which art and design thinking, creations and interventions bring voice and equitable opportunities to groups affected by disparities; advance environmental, economic and social sustainability; and enhance individual lives.

The core concepts of diversity, equity, inclusion, and globalization are touchstones at MICA. They are guiding values, principles, and strategies that infuse our academic and institutional planning, practices, research, and outcomes. They are catalysts for creativity, excellence and thoughtful engagement on campus and in larger spheres.


Center for Culture & Identity

The Center for Culture & Identity (CCI) bases its philosophy on inclusion and fostering recognition and respect for the voices of all students. Throughout the year there are a variety of opportunities including educational and social activities that are planned and tailored to promote the improvement of academic success and graduation rates of artists of color.
