Accuracy in Academia
|Headquarters||Bethesda, Maryland, United States|
AIA describes itself as a nonprofit watchdog group and think tank that "want[s] schools to return to their traditional mission-the quest for truth". The AIA claims to promote academic freedom and is particularly critical of what it describes as a left-wing bias in American academia. The AIA characterizes such bias as liberal or communist "indoctrination", and aims to stand up for the rights of politically conservative students and faculty.
In 1985 the American Association of University Professors claimed that the AIA is a threat to academic freedom due to the group's efforts to recruit students to report professors alleged to "disseminate misinformation". Some have described the AIA as a "useful irritant".
