Transforming America's Colleges and Universities
March 31, 2019 by ACTA Download PDF

The good news is that America is awake to the urgent need for transformative change in higher education. We are at a turning point: ACTA’s admonitions to make a college education affordable and indisputably valuable for students and our nation are being heeded as never before. And more good news: We are a nation of problem solvers, and our colleges and universities can once more become the unquestioned envy of the world. The steadily increasing receptivity of higher education leadership, the media, and the public to ACTA’s common sense solutions tell us that at this inflection point, American higher education will move to a higher level of quality and productivity. ACTA will continue its untiring efforts on behalf of higher education and our nation.


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.
