Since that time, in 1996, Defendant Illinois Board of Higher Education has published erroneous information about ACM on the world wide web.
For the record, ACM is a Federally recognized tax-exempt university in lawful operation, and the Federal Government recognizes that ACM has full degree-granting powers, in the same manner as it has done, since its inception in 1886. All ACM degrees have been and remain valid.
Prospective students should ignore Illinois' erroneous
information because there is no factual basis upon which the Illinois
Board of Higher Education can support their wrongful claim. It is public
record that the Illinois Attorney General participated in proceedings
in which ACM was restructured in such manner as to leave no question
that ACM remains in lawful operation. Since Illinois does
not wish to recognize the precious asset (having the American Conservatory
of Music in Illinois) they once possessed, then the great State of
Indiana deserves the inheritance of such a cultural asset.
ACM has promised Indiana that it will not ever return its main campus
to Illinois. Students are further protected by the fact that ACM has
established a campus location in the beautiful British Independent Country
