Graduate Community

Student Engagment

MICA's Center for Student Engagement has numerous clubs and student-led organizations you can join.

Student Voice Association: Graduate Student Council


The Graduate Exhibitions Committee, also known as GradEx, would like to expand the opportunities MICA graduate students have to showcase their work. GradEx is a student-run organization that facilitates learning experiences through the curation and exhibition of art and design.

MICA Taiwan Student Association

MICA Taiwan Student Association aims to share and celebrate our culture with the MICA community. We want to support international students' MICA experience and relationships with Baltimore. Furthermore, to build a safe and welcoming space for students to talk about their own culture and identity, and make connections to facilitate potential collaborations.

Graduate Pop Ups

We invite graduate students to submit proposals for student-led initiatives and activities that integrate programs and build graduate community and culture. Students are encouraged to submit proposals and design events that bring graduate students together and advance the academic and social life of our graduate community.

National Art Education Association (NAEA) Student Chapter

The MICA NAEA Student Chapter is a student-led organization that strives to foster relationships within the MICA community, the Art Education community, and the surrounding Baltimore/ Maryland community. We advocate for arts education at MICA and in the local community. This includes a mentoring network called Generation Next: Empowering Future Leaders, where we actively seek to make greater connections among undergraduate and graduate students who express interests in art education while working with Baltimore City youth. The NAEA Student Chapter also provides different learning opportunities, which help support professional development for future art educators.

Black Student Union, Grad Chapter

To create a space where black grad students at MICA feel seen, heard, and held connected; a space that specifically addresses the challenges of being black at MICA and celebrates the joys of that experience as well; a space where we can gather and just be.
