What Are People Saying About ACTC?


“ACTC is the critical institutional vehicle for supporting, promoting, and expanding liberal education based on the study of important texts.”

Roosevelt Montás, Columbia University


 “I relish every chance to engage with ACTC colleagues because, conservative or liberal, they ‘grok’ (thanks, Mr. Heinlein) the liberal arts.” 

Page Laws, Dean Emerita of the Robert C. Nusbaum Honors College at Norfolk State University
