Sharing Your Work
MLA students and alumni have the opportunity to share their work and collaborate with faculty and graduate students outside of the Stanford community.
The Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs (AGLSP), with over 88 member institutions, holds an annual conference to bring together faculty, students, alumni, and administrators of graduate liberal studies programs. The conference provides a forum for the exchange of information and ideas among members, and offers students and alumni the opportunity to present their work.
