What Will They Learn? Preparing Students for the 21st Century Marketplace

December 4, 2018

Now in its 10th year, What Will They Learn is one of ACTA’s most courageous and groundbreaking initiatives. It takes a penetrating look at more than 1,100 colleges and universities, grading how effective they are in delivering a comprehensive liberal arts education that equips students to succeed in the global marketplace and civic life. Listen in as Elliott Cole engages program leaders Megan Riethmiller and Nathaniel Urban, along with ACTA's president Michael Poliakoff, to examine how What Will They Learn cuts through the dense verbiage of course catalogs and boldly shows what really matters in higher education.
