A Report Card on Public Higher Education in Missouri

October 2008 by ACTA

Missouri is the "Show Me" state—with this goal in mind, the report examines the state of higher education in Missouri, focusing on four key areas of the public's interest. They are: what students are learning (the curriculum), whether the marketplace of ideas is vibrant (intellectual diversity), how the universities are run (governance), and what a college education costs (affordability). If our nation is to ensure its continued preeminence, policymakers, trustees, alumni, and taxpayers must know what's going on in higher education. This report card aims to do just that—and it follows similar ACTA report cards on higher education in the states of North Carolina and Georgia.
