ACTA is an independent, non-profit organization committed to academic freedom, excellence, and accountability at America's colleges and universities.
ACTA's new website HowCollegesSpendMoney.com, which allows higher education leaders, trustees, and donors to access and analyze data patterns on college spending, has drawn the attention of the press. The website launch took place at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, on Wednesday, January 30 and featured a distinguished panel including Diane Auer Jones, Principal Deputy Under Secretary at the U.S. Department of Education; former U.S. congressmen and former University of Nebraska regent Hal Daub; Tom McMillen, president and CEO of the LEAD1 Association; and Partners for College Affordability and Public Trust president James Toscano. Panelists spoke to a packed room of over 85 guests, including a significant number of trustees. The event brought together a group of new as well as familiar faces to discuss the rising cost of tuition, the growing student debt burden, and the need for colleges to innovate and improve efficiency.
