On April 29, 2021, faculty and leadership associated with programs designated as ACTA’s Oases of Excellence will gather in Washington, DC, to discuss the challenges facing the liberal arts in higher education. The panels will include information about best practices in development and communications as well as navigating relationships with university administration.

The conference will be held in the Members Dining Room of the Cosmos Club. A dinner will follow at a location TBD.

This invitation-only conference serves as an opportunity for faculty and program leadership to learn from each other as we seek to encourage the liberal arts and academic excellence in higher education.


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.
