The collaborative efforts in Foreign Language are brought under the heading of:
MACE -Foreign languages
In the initial phase of the collaborative effort, interested parties from the state met in Columbia, Missouri at the "Statewide Workshop on Academic Transformation and Collaboration: Reimagining Higher Education in Missouri"(link) on October 25/26, 2010 to further discussion on this topic. As a consequence of these meetings, a Memorandum of Agreement was signed by the Provosts of the University of Central Missouri, Missouri Western State University, Missouri State University, and Southeast Missouri State University setting into motion collaboration in the discipline of Foreign Languages.
The signatories subsequently agreed to set up pilot collaborative programs to begin in the Spring Semester of 2011.
