MICA is a universe in which the artist is the rule, not the exception.

This is a place that believes in the ability of the artistic process to be a stimulus for positive change. This is a place that nurtures the entrepreneurial spirit, values the mind-expanding pursuit of knowledge, and welcomes different perspectives.

MICA has become the leader in the education of artists and designers by fostering a community of talented, creative individuals committed to redefining the boundaries of art and design. Our community is an intersection of imaginative students, accomplished faculty, exceptional resources, and an extensive network of alumni, working creatives, and partners that stretch from Baltimore to every corner of the globe.

DEIG Integration at MICA

A Meaningful Journey

MICA's Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Globalization (DEIG) work is critical and central to us as a community and to our purpose as an institution. Via a positive and inclusive shift in campus culture and a journey to structuralize policies and practices in the context of our educational mission, we seek to deploy DEIG as a catalyst for creativity, educational excellence, and responsible engagement.
