According to a recent MLA report (ADFL
2004), Spanish continues to be the most commonly taught foreign language in higher education over the last four-plus decades, accounting for over half of language enrollments in college and universities. As those numbers continue to grow, we know that Spanish program director positions continue also to increase - yet we remain relatively underrepresented in this organization. AAUSC offers valuable resources to LPDs of programs of all shapes and sizes, please consider joining and recommending the organization to your colleagues.
