The Missouri Geographic Alliance (MGA) is a grassroots network of Missouri elementary and secondary educators, university instructors, geography professionals, and concerned citizens dedicated to the advancement of geographic literacy in the state of Missouri.
MGA serves five primary purposes in the state of Missouri.

In the past two decades the Missouri Geographic Alliance has consistently been the voice of geography education in the state of Missouri. The Alliance has had a long-standing history of providing resources, professional development opportunities, advocating for geographic education and geographic literacy at local, regional, state and national- evels.
