Third Round of FFO Grant Recipients Announced
We’re pleased to wrap up the calendar year with this announcement to recognize the third round of members who have been awarded HxA’s Flexible Funding Opportunity (FFO) grant. The grantees in this round are working to cultivate ongoing opportunities for constructive conversations and deeper connection on campuses across the US. Not only will their work benefit current students and faculty at their home institutions but - because of their commitment to creating models and frameworks for others - their work has great potential to improve the culture of higher education for future generations. We’re so grateful to be able to support their valuable work.
The Heterodox Communities (HxCommunities) and the FFO grants are two HxA member benefits that facilitate connection and collaboration between members as they seek to promote open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement. These benefits offer opportunities to find support and community, share resources, and address challenges around these principles.
FFO funding is still available to support additional member initiatives. Learn more about the application process and requirements, and read more about the third round recipients below!
"Symposium of Public Discourse and Deliberation Program Directors"
Kevin Marinelli, Executive Director, Program for Public Discourse, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill | HxHumanities
Through this symposium, HxA member Kevin Marinelli is bringing together public discourse and deliberation program directors and associates from campuses across the country to connect with one another, communicate their ongoing initiatives, share their successes and challenges, engage diverse pedagogical techniques, and, ultimately, pool their intellectual resources in the effort to advance a robust framework of rhetorical and deliberative pedagogy well into the twenty-first century.

Your generosity supports our non-partisan efforts to advance the principles of open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement to improve higher education and academic research.
