Established in 1992, the Montana Geographic Alliance (MGA) is a member of the national Geographic Alliance Network organized by the National Geographic Education Foundation to promote geography education throughout the U.S. MGA is a network of K-12 teachers and administrators, state education policymakers, college and university faculty, and non-profit and private sector partners dedicated to improving students' geographic skills, understandings, and career preparation across disciplines.

Although the rich geography of Montana is the primary focus of MGA activities, we also strive to provide members with a global perspective of current issues in geographic science. We accomplish these goals primarily through supporting teacher professional development, including summer institutes held in Montana and other regions around the world, and by assisting teachers in locating superior classroom tools and resources, including supports for building geospatial skills and understandings. We take a user-centered approach to this work, striving to be responsive, inclusive, and transparent in all endeavors.
