How Trustees Can Advance Intellectual Diversity on Campus
June 1, 2009 by ACTA Download PDF Press Release

This report features ten best practices, gleaned from colleges and universities across the country, for promoting the free exchange of ideas in and out of the classroom. Since intellectual diversity is at the core of any true university education, the report commends institutions that have taken action, urges them to keep at it, and exhorts other boards to play their proper leadership role-—working, of course, with administrators, faculty, alumni, and donors-—in guaranteeing and enriching the intellectual environment on campus.


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.
