Wilson Center: An Oasis of Excellence

Wilson Center Attends the national “Oasis of Excellence” Conference hosted by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA).

The American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA) is an independent, nonprofit organization committed to academic freedom, excellence, and accountability at America’s colleges and universities.  Launched in 1995, ACTA is 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 a philosophically rich, high-quality college education at an affordable price.

As part of its mission ACTA promotes rigorous academic study, liberal arts curriculum, and broadening viewpoints through “Oases of Excellence.” These 65-plus programs share the commitment to educating students for informed citizenship in a free society by maintaining the highest academic standards, introducing students to the best of the foundational arts and sciences, teaching American heritage, and ensuring free inquiry into a range of intellectual viewpoints.

We are proud that the Wilson Center for Leadership in the Public Interest is part of this wonderful network!
