Heterodox Academy

Institute of Technology


The HxA Campus Community at MIT is the locus of efforts to promote open dialogue and viewpoint diversity on campus.

We encourage students and faculty from a variety of backgrounds to engage in respectful and reasoned discourse on issues of importance to the MIT community, no matter how controversial.

Our programming includes invited speaker events, conferences, and social gatherings, frequently with the collaboration of other student groups and outside organizations. We hope our Campus Community serves as a nexus between students and faculty dedicated to enhancing the free speech culture at MIT, one conversation at a time.
