Marx Engels Lenin Institute
"Without revolutionary theory, there can be no revolutionary movement."

"Marxism taught me what society was. I was like a blindfolded man in a forest, who doesn't even know where north or south is. If you don't eventually come to truly understand the history of the class struggle, or at least have a clear idea that society is divided between the rich and the poor, and that some people subjugate and exploit other people, you're lost in a forest, not knowing anything."

Fidel Castro


The Marx-Engels-Lenin Institute is an online center for education where students and activists alike can study the theory & practice of the science of Marxism-Leninism and its contemporary application. Our mission is to further the revolutionary socialist movement through the widest possible campaign of education and the training of cadres which can bring the working masses to the level of revolutionary class-consciousness.  


The Marx Engels Lenin Institute educates visionary, pragmatic leaders in a collaborative, interdisciplinary setting founded on academic excellence and the principles of Marxism-Leninism, social and environmental justice. We train revolutionary cadre and radical thinkers to be interdisciplinary, open-minded, globally-thinking scholars and practitioners who are equipped to tackle today’s complex political and social problems.
