Established in 1988 by a student initiative, the MIC was originally founded to be the support
center for African American and Latino students. In 1994, as the need to support under-represented
students on campus grew, the MIC expanded to include LAIC. APAC joined in 1995 and SED was
added in 1998.
In 2007, the MIC became the part of the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement. The
division was organized under President Powers' direction to foster a more inclusive climate on campus.
In 2009, QPOCA was added as a student agency. Today, the MIC continues to work towards making the
University of Texas a welcoming place for all students.
