At a Crossroads

A Report Card on Public Higher Education in Minnesota
March 1, 2010 by ACTA Download PDF Press Release

This report card on public higher education in Minnesota focuses on four key areas of the public’s interest: 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 Missouri, Georgia, and Illinois.


Launched in 1995, we are the only organization that works with alumni, donors, trustees, and education leaders across the United States to support liberal arts education, uphold high academic standards, safeguard the free exchange of ideas on campus, and ensure that the next generation receives an intellectually rich, high-quality college education at an affordable price.
