The "Statement of Professional Ethics" was adopted by the Delegate Assembly in 1991 and was published in Profession 92 (New York: MLA, 1992) 75-78. An earlier version was prepared by an ad hoc committee of the Modern Language Association appointed by the Executive Council in 1987, following a Delegate Assembly recommendation that such a committee be designated to "study professional ethics and provide MLA-endorsed guidelines."

Members of the committee that prepared the final statement:

Barry Gaines, University of New Mexico*
Lawrence Poston, University of Illinois, Chicago (Ch.)*
Roslyn Abt Schindler, Wayne State University
Mario Valdés, University of Toronto
Louise Vasvari, State University of New York, Stony Brook

*Continuing member of the original ad hoc committee.
