MOCON Programs

The Missouri Consortium of International Programs and Studies (MOCON), was established in 1982. Its initial purpose was to run a cooperative study abroad in London called the Missouri-London Program.  MOCON was a consortium of four Missouri public universities. It has grown over the years to include most public universities in the state of Missouri. In addition to sponsoring study abroad programs MOCON became a forum for cooperation and information sharing in regards international education among the member institutions. MOCON members, from the beginning have shared a common interest in developing their international education programs. To learn more about the MOCON programs visit our page. 

In regards to study abroad, the MOCON Programs currently offers Missouri students the opportunity to study abroad in London and Greece.
