A Report Card on Georgia's System of Public Higher Education
March 1, 2008 by Phyllis Palmiero Download PDF Press Release

This report card takes a close look at the University System of Georgia, focusing on four key areas of the public’s interest. They are: 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 will be followed by others in different states.


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.
