ACTA believes that the free exchange of ideas is the lifeblood of a vibrant democracy. The college campus must serve as an open forum where students, professors, and the community can come together across ideological divides to pursue truth and strengthen our country’s free institutions. ACTA is working to reverse the erosion of civil discourse and the suppression of free speech that afflict so many of our colleges and universities and jeopardize the future of our free society.
Students need a strong foundation of skills and knowledge for success. ACTA believes that this can be achieved through clear general education requirements. We work with colleges and universities to promote rigorous liberal arts programs that prepare students for the modern workplace and community participation and equip them with a thorough understanding of the rights and responsibilities of American citizenship.
