Now in its 35th year, the Mizel Institute has grown into a nationally recognized, nonprofit institution with two distinct centers: the Mizel Museum and the Counterterrorism Education Learning Lab (CELL).
The Mizel Museum promotes social justice with its unique educational programming, cultural exhibits and events. The CELL confronts the threat of terrorism through its renowned event series, world-class exhibit and national training initiatives.
These organizations fulfill the Mizel Institute’s mission of developing more educated, conscientious and empowered communities in order to create a world that is safer and more inclusive.
