In the Spring of 2018, eight graduate students led by Sukyun Weaver, Graduate ELL Specialist, came together to create MICulture - an orientation guide - about the MICA culture, developed by MICA student researchers and most importantly informed by members of the MICA community. Though MICA related orientation information already abounds and is disseminated through many mediums, we wanted to focus on introducing students to our MICA Culture. In short, this booklet is an introductory orientation and guide to our culture here at MICA. We are excited to share this information with you!
