At HxA, we are incredibly proud of our 5,300+ members who are exploring, sharing, and advocating for HxA’s core values on campuses around the country and the world. In HxA President John Tomasi’s words, “We look to our members to be the primary agents of change and we are always searching out new ways to support and empower those members.”
That’s why we launched the HxCommunities Flexible Funding Opportunity (FFO) this past January: to support the important work HxA members are doing to advance constructive disagreement, viewpoint diversity, and open inquiry in education. This ongoing grant offering, the first ever from HxA, is open to HxA members and affiliates who participate in the HxCommunities program, and supports a wide variety of initiatives.
So far, we have awarded over $228,000 in grant funding. Our first round of recipients represent a variety of disciplines and institutions, and each is an example of how our members are championing HxA values in their communities. Read about the first round of recipients below. If their projects spark your imagination, consider applying for your own FFO grant.
