Intellectual Diversity

Time for Action
December 1, 2005 by ACTA Download PDF Press Release

In 2005, a consortium of higher education organizations issued a statement affirming the importance of intellectual diversity. A survey by ACTA found, however, that not a single institution had taken concrete steps to further that goal. This report is designed to help boards of trustees and their institutions address the issue of intellectual diversity and to do so in a way that is sensitive to academic freedom and shared governance.


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.
