Every month the Office of Culture and Identity will publish a newsletter to keep you up to date with events, news and ways to get involved. If you are a student and would like to showcase your work in our newsletter, please email us! This is especially for those whose work reflect, comment on or illuminate themes of identity, culture, belonging and perspective. To MICA departments and offices, as well as Baltimore community partners, please send us your events and programs to highlight.
MICA's Office of Culture and Identity supports a number of student-lead activities and other diversity and inclusion initiatives like mentoring networks, diversity grants and resources, History/Heritage Months, and annual events like the Annual Benefit Fashion Show. Click the link below to explore OCI's supportive resources and our network of mentors.
Each year funds are generated from ticket sales of the Annual Benefit Fashion Show (ABFS) sponsored by the Office of Culture and Identity (OCI). Profits from the show provide additional financial assistance for student participants in OCI and is on a needs-basis.
The OCI Connections (OCIC) Mentoring Network is a personal support for incoming first year and transfer students. OCIC connects students through mentoring and co-curricular learning and is designed to produce a group of student leaders who embody the values and support and stand in solidarity with those who are feeling marginalized or underrepresented. We are accepting applications on an ongoing basis for mentees who would like to be paired up with a mentor.
