ACTA’s Agenda: Back to the Middle Ages With Higher Education Serving The Wealthy (tags)

Behind ACTA’s attack on dissent on campus is a long-range program aimed at turning academia into a fuedal preserve of oligrachic power. All in the name of "quality," of course!

ACTA List Breakdown By College or University--7 Schools Have Over Half The Items (tags)

ACTA's report, "Defending Civilization: How Our Universities Are Failing America, and What Can Be Done About It," pretends to present an objective picture of what is happening on America's campuses. Its evidence, which is barely mentioned, much less analyzed in the body of the report, is presented in an 117 item list in the appendix. But a single school accounted for 15 items, 3 accounted for 40 items and just 7 schools accounted for 59 items, more than half the items on the list. This hardly represents American colleges and universities as a whole. It represents extremely sloppy "research."

ACTA List Items Breakdown By Type Shows Academia Doing Its Job In A Democracy (tags)

ACTA's report, "Defending Civilization: How Our Universities Are Failing America, and What Can Be Done About It," pretends to present a picture America's campuses as the "weak link" in responding to the terrorist attacks of September 11. ACTA's attack is based on the assumption that academia's role should be that of a cheerleader. But this breakdown of the items on the list shows the vast majority of items involve just the sorts of activity that academia should be engaged in.

ACTA's so-called "report" on campus dissent "Defending Civilization: How Our Universities Are Failing America, and What Can Be Done About It," is actually an vicious, intellectually vacuous hit piece aimed right at the heart of academia, and the very Western values it pretends to be defending.

The original version of "Defending Civilization: How Our Universities Are Failing America, and What Can Be Done About It," a report from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA), founded in 1995 by Lynne Cheney and Senator Joseph Lieberman. This version names names, in good ol' Joe McCarthy style. It has since been pulled from ACTA's website.

Lynne Cheney's Campus Crusade (tags)

Campus protests against the war on terrorism are bothering the heck out of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA), founded in 1995 by Lynne Cheney and Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman. ACTA wants conservative trustees and alumni to exercise a greater say over the entire university governance process, and it recently published an incendiary report claiming that "colleges and university faculty have been the weak link in America's response to the attack" of September 11.
