Virtual April 8, 2021 Undergraduate Affiliates Only

Undergraduate students at academic institutions across the world represent our future in a profound way. Cultivating this next generation of leaders is a foundational goal of the Academy. This talk focused on steps that undergraduate students, from any major at any institution, can take to set themselves up not only for their own success, but also to help them make positive contributions to our world, which, in case you haven’t been paying attention, is sorely in need of positive change.

A heterodox approach to one’s education is key to developing skills and learning content that will allow students to navigate a world that is full of complexity and ideological diversity. Students learned how to integrate a heterodox worldview into their studies to help best prepare them as leaders for our shared future.  This event took place on Thursday, April 8 at 5pm ET.
