A State Report Card on Public Higher Education
April 1, 2011 by ACTA Download PDF

This report card on public higher education in Maine focuses on four key areas of 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 Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Minnesota, and Missouri.


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.
