Who is eligible to apply?

Applications are open to groups of 2-3 lead applicants who meet the following criteria:

  • All are members of HxA (check the list; apply for membership)
  • All are active professors, instructors, administrators, staff, or graduate students at the same college or university.
  • All are willing to grow the HxA Campus Community as co-chairs (or designate a replacement) through Spring 2025. 
  • All agree to the Program Expectations outlined below.

In the spirit of viewpoint diversity, HxA encourages applicant groups that include diverse perspectives along disciplinary, political, and other lines. 

In addition to the 2-3 lead applicants, a founding group may include up to 2 undergraduate students as “undergraduate affiliate(s)” who are also HxA members. This is optional.

Retired/emeritus faculty and staff are welcome to be involved in group planning but should not be lead applicants.

Application Process

Group formation. Carefully review the program information on this page. Send any questions to CampusCommunities@heterodoxacademy.org. To connect with other HxA members on your campus, consult the member directory and encourage your colleagues to apply for membership.

Application. The application form is short and simple, and applicant groups can save their progress before submitting. 

Interview. All qualified applicant groups will be invited to a Zoom call, to meet HxA team members and discuss the opportunities at your campus. 

Selection. HxA hopes to support a significant number of Campus Communities in the first cohort, but some applicants may not be approved due to resource limitations or other reasons. Approvals will be communicated on a rolling basis.

Future Cohorts. HxA plans to expand the Network with additional cohorts in 2023. Subscribe to our emails to stay up to date.
