Mesoamerican, Indigenous, and Caribbean Cultures Initiative
The Time is Now!
Ahora! Maintenant! Agora!
Recently we celebrated the centennial of The New School, a major milestone in its history. The central mission of the New School for Social Research in 1919 was to create an institution of higher learning in which refugees from Europe fleeing political and ethnic persecution could unite to pursue critical intellectual inquiry, freedom of self- expression, and most importantly to openly criticize and condemn policies and laws that would discriminate against communities because of race, nationality, sexual orientation or political persuasion. This philosophy and commitment stands at the heart of the institution then, and now.

Who We Are
Who are the people behind MICCI? We are a unified, and passionate vanguard of students and faculty, dedicated to meaningful change within The New School, affecting the LatinX, Caribbean and Indigenous peoples. Please take a moment to explore who we are.
Title VI Office
One of the most pressing and prominent demands on our radar is the establishment of a Title VI Office, equipped with a Title VI Coordinator and Investigator.
The proper preservation of the frescos in the ‘Orozco Room’ and the appointing of MICCI as the guardians of the space.
The commitment to diversifying and improving the process of expanding The New School community.
