DEADLINE EXTENDED! Heterodox Academy is accepting nominations for the 2021 Open Inquiry Awards until June 11, 2021. 

HxA is committed not only to measuring and analyzing the challenges institutions of higher learning face with regards to open inquiry, viewpoint diversity and constructive disagreement, but also to helping identify and facilitate pathways to overcoming those challenges.

The Open Inquiry Awards highlight some of the individuals, groups, and institutions who do exemplary work promoting open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement — providing models that others can learn from, be inspired by, and perhaps even emulate.

Each year, recipients of the Awards are nominated by members of Heterodox Academy and independently reviewed by members of HxA’s Open Inquiry Awards Committee, who then develop a short list of up to three candidates for each category. The short lists are presented to HxA’s staff, Advisory Committee and Board of Directors — all of whom then vote to select the winner for each award.
