MLA Survey of Enrollments in Languages other than English in Higher Education

The MLA has conducted twenty-two surverys of undergraduate and graduate fall semester course enrollments in all languages other than English at US Colleges and Universities. During a sixteen month period two full-time research assistants conduct research with a remarkably high response rate of over 95%. The MLA surverys are widley acknowledged by the field of lanuage teaching, government, and industry as the single, all-inclusive metric of United States post-secondary interest in the study of languages. This Chairman's grant will support the salary of one of the two research assistants who we hire to conduct data collection. Cost sharing, calculated at $150,000 will cover addtional funding for a second research assistant, IT development and for an verage 25% of the annual salaries of the three regular MLA staffers.
