In addition to our regular work producing research reports, articles, statements, press releases, webinars, podcasts, and the like, the NAS has also over the years created practical resources for scholars and concerned citizens to take matters into their own hands. That is, documents and other materials with which interested parties may educate themselves on the most important issues facing American higher education; petition their legislators and school boards to enact critical reforms; and, most recently, defend themselves or others against attacks on academic freedom and freedom of expression.
What follows is a list of said resources, which we hope will be a valuable aid to those who need them or know someone who does.
