Driving Higher Education Reform in Challenging Times
March 31, 2020 by ACTA Download PDF

For years, ACTA warned of a looming crisis in higher education, and with it, a crisis for our nation. It is writ large in runaway college costs, civic ignorance, a skills deficit that frustrates employers, and the breakdown in the discourse that is the lifeblood of a free society. But from its inception, ACTA has been more than a warning bell in the night: Its core mission has been the construtive change that leads colleges and universities and, most importantly, our nation forward to new standards of achievement and excellence.

This annual report shares accomplishments from the past year and provides a glimpse of what is underway in 2020, which marks ACTA’s 25th anniversary.


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.
