America’s colleges and universities are among the nation’s most important institutions: drivers of innovation and economic growth, repositories of our civilizational inheritance, and incubators of civic understanding and norms of civil dialogue. The American Council of Trustees and Alumni has spent the last 25 years working to save them. As 2020 draws to a close, we invite you to join ACTA leaders, past and present, in celebrating a quarter century of successful efforts to promote academic freedom, academic excellence, and governance accountability.


Launched in 1995, we are the only organization that works with alumni, donors, trustees, and education leaders across the United States to support liberal arts education, uphold high academic standards, safeguard the free exchange of ideas on campus, and ensure that the next generation receives an intellectually rich, high-quality college education at an affordable price.
