What’s it all about?

The HxA Open Mind Conference will convene Heterodox Academy members, community leaders, campus administrators, students, and philanthropists to discuss viewpoint diversity and open inquiry in the academy. In conversation with conference attendees, high-profile panelists and moderators will define and diagnose the problems; articulate the challenges that professors and administrators must navigate on their campuses and in their disciplines; highlight existing efforts to create positive change in classrooms and on campuses; and explore stakeholder-specific strategies to improve campus climate.


The day will be broken into a series of Live Streams including keynotes, panels, and Q&As.
