MICA does not care about students who are sexually assaulted, abused, or harassed—*especially* when the perpetrator is someone who is favored by Administrators, VPs and Provosts. Administration will ultimately do anything to protect the reputation of the college and those accused of such crimes in order to protect their "pristine" reputation and to keep the money flowing in. Students who press the college to take their complaints seriously will be retaliated against.

There are a lot of issues between administration, departments, professors and students when it comes to institutional communication (though that's true for every school). MICA offers unique placement in Baltimore's artistic hub, as well as central to the East Coast Art Belt. Diverse in students and voices- this school has connections to every corner of the world. The MICA network is really what you're paying to gain access. Play your cards right, you'll get a job on top of invaluable experience.
