What People Are Saying about ACTA

"Congratulations on the important work you are doing... what you are fighting for has never been more important."

- Lawrence Summers,
Professor and former President, Harvard University

"As someone who sees the trends (many disheartening, some hopeful) from 'in the trenches,' I am so grateful for ACTA's gradual but sure and well-earned ascendancy as a nationally recognized force for positive change."

- Professor Phillip Stambovsky,
Fairfield University

"Wise giving to higher education requires as much care as any other purchase or investment. . . intelligent donors have a valuable ally in a group called the American Council of Trustees and Alumni."

- Stephen Friess,
Investor's Business Daily
