ACTA is an independent, non-profit organization committed to academic freedom, excellence, and accountability at America's colleges and universities.
ACTA has repeatedly documented that the system of higher education accreditation is a barrier to innovation, improvement, and accountability at colleges and universities. On May 29, ACTA President Anne D. Neal demonstrated to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights that the inadequacy of accreditation is particularly harmful to socio-economically disadvantaged students. Joining Anne Neal on the panel were Neal McCluskey from the Cato Institute, Ronald Haskins from the Brookings Institution, and Michele Siqueiros representing the Campaign for College Opportunity.
