You Love Shakespeare.
American Universities Don't.
The Vanishing Shakespeare, a new study by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, shows that the Bard has virtually disappeared from university English departments' required reading lists—coast to coast, on campuses large and small, public and private. The study complements ACTA's 1996 report The Shakespeare File.

Is Your College Part of This Trend?
While at one point English majors were commonly required to take courses on Shakespeare's work, The Vanishing Shakespeare reveals that today they are not. Contact ACTA to find out what is happening on campuses across America, and what you can do—whether you are a trustee or parent, an alumnus or administrator, a student or a taxpayer.

Shakespeare in American Life
The Folger Shakespeare Library's new Shakespeare in American Life website is well worth a look. While there, you can listen to ACTA's president discuss Shakespeare and English curricula as part of a new radio documentary that is airing across the country.
