North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Our HxA Campus Community aims to promote the values of open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement throughout the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill campus and community.
UNC’s Heterodox Academy Campus Community, Heterodox Heels, aims to build a community of faculty, staff and students that actively works to improve the quality of research and education by promoting the values of open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement throughout the UNC-Chapel Hill campus and community.
This community will actively seek out diverse viewpoints to think deeply about and engage in robust dialogue around important campus-specific and societal issues. We will work to influence campus culture and policy and will encourage one another to speak up with courage and to take a public stand, when appropriate.
We are committed to continuously learning about what does and doesn't work and will engage in research and resource development to share with the larger UNC-Chapel Hill community. We will also hold events that model these core values of open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement and train and empower others to promote practice of them in and out of the classroom.
