Research

Research at MICA is different from other colleges.

The mission of the Office of Research (OOR) is to inspire and support a vibrant research culture at MICA through the strategic development of a research infrastructure, resources, policies, and programs that promote creativity, knowledge creation, reflective practice, and innovation. The office seeks to advance the recognition of research in art and design and advocates for the value of creative work in society. 

 In addition to the Office of Research, research is coordinated through the College's three research centers: Social Design, Art Education, and Design Thinking.
