2016 was one for the record books. After a tumultuous twelve months, ACTA President Dr. Michael Poliakoff joins Higher Ed Now to reflect on the successes and milestones of the past year in American higher education. The conversation traces major events in the fight for academic excellence, academic freedom, and accountability and how ACTA influenced these vital areas. From a viral report about civic education, to examinations of college finance and administrative spending, to innovating philanthropy in the academy, ACTA set the agenda for university trustees and alumni donors in 2016.
