The Consortium is an umbrella organization for individual foreign language departments and other academic units to foster a culture of responsible and useful assessment of student learning outcomes in the humanities. As a collaborative effort, it enhances assessment practices developed by individual departments, helps to disseminate exemplary practices within the Consortium and beyond, and supports research into student learning.

The Consortium is open to new members of any institutional environment willing to contribute their insights into assessment as a useful tool in academic development of faculty, students, programs, and institutions.
