We advance the principles of open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement to improve higher education and academic research.

Actively support our mission though community building, research, events and more!

HxA facilitates various online and in-person communities to connect members and other supporters who advocate for open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement. We have dozens of Campus Communities on individual campuses around the globe, as well as HxCommunities which bring together members of specific disciplines, regions, and other academic settings.

With the generous support of Schmidt Futures, Heterodox Academy (HxA) is pleased to solicit grant proposals from its members as part of its Open Inquiry in STEM Disciplines Grant Program.
