What is Viewpoint Diversity ?

Viewpoint diversity refers to the state of a community or group in which members approach questions or problems from multiple perspectives. When a community is marked by intellectual humility, empathy, trust, and curiosity, viewpoint diversity gives rise to engaged and civil debate, constructive disagreement, and shared progress towards truth. Viewpoint diversity enables colleges and universities to realize their twin goals of producing the best research and providing the best education.

Heterodox Academy is dedicated to improving research and education in universities by increasing viewpoint diversity, mutual understanding, and constructive disagreement. We achieve this mission by informing national conversations about higher education with original research and perspectives, building a community of scholars interested in advancing the ideals of open inquiry, and providing tools to faculty members and administrators who wish to make change in their local contexts.

Working together, we can advance viewpoint diversity in the academy. To learn more, please visit our library and the HxA blog
