American Association of University Supervisors, Coordinators, and Directors of Language Programs



AAUSC holds its annual meeting at the annual conference of ACTFL, the weekend before Thanksgiving. Each year we host our business meeting/panel discussion/wine reception, and a number of AAUSC members present sessions of interest to LPDs (see AAUSC SPOTLIGHT sessions in the Events calendar below).

The ACTFL conference is the best opportunity to meet fellow AAUSC members and discuss the most timely issues in language teaching, language program direction, and graduate student training/professionalization.

This year's ACTFL will take place in Nashville TN, November 17-19, 2017. Check back here for more information as the date approaches.


Having gained affiliated status with the MLA, the AAUSC also holds one session each year at the MLA convention, which takes place every year in January, immediately following New Year's day. This year's MLA convention will be held in New York City, January 4-7, 2017. Hope to see you there!
