ACTA is an independent, non-profit organization committed to academic freedom, excellence, and accountability at America's colleges and universities.
Senator Yudichak’s bill is making progress: “. . .the reforms outlined in Senate Bill 1240 have strong bipartisan support as evidenced by its 33 co-sponsors” during a statement addressing the appointment of Eric J. Barron as the new president of Penn State University.
This is a fantastic development, and ACTA hopes that Pennsylvania will pass legislation that restrains the size of the university’s board. Further recommendations can be seen in ACTA’S letter sent to the Pennsylvania legislature.
