Celebrating Release of “Restoring the Promise: Higher Education in America”

June 18, 2019 | 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

1730 M Street, NW, Washington, D.C. Suite 600

On Tuesday June 18, the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA) and the Independent Institute will host a reception to celebrate the release of “Restoring the Promise: Higher Education in America” by Richard Vedder. The reception will begin at 2 p.m. and will be held at ACTA’s office, 1730 M Street, NW, Washington, D.C. We would be honored if you would be our guest.

Richard Vedder—Senior Fellow at the Independent Institute, Emeritus Professor of Economics at Ohio University, and Founding Director of the Center for College Affordability and Productivity—is a distinguished scholar and a leading expert on higher education finance. In “Restoring the Promise: Higher Education in America,” Dr. Vedder provides authoritative analysis of the serious challenges confronting our nation’s colleges and universities and describes solutions. Among the many key issues the book examines include: student loan debt, free speech and academic freedom, curricula, governance, race and diversity, and much more.

The time for reform is now. We are at an inflection point. Our colleges and universities have a choice to make: reform, or continue down the path of failure—failure for them and their students. We hope you can join us for this important discussion led by Richard Vedder on higher education. 

If you can join us, please RSVP by June 15 by contacting Leslie Deshaies at Ldeshaies@GoACTA.org or 202-467-6787. We hope to see you soon
