Join our community of faculty, staff, and students in our efforts to improve the quality of research and education in universities through open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement.

I want the university to prioritize truth-seeking above all other kinds of missions, and I think a commitment to viewpoint diversity is essential to achieving that. I want to be part of a community that shares that value.

We don't lose ourselves in some homogenous kumbaya union. No. We acknowledge our differences. We acknowledge the ways in which we might look at the world through different lenses. And yet we can still be mutually empowered.
