The Problem

In response to the rise of orthodoxy within academia,

our goal is to facilitate an environment in which a diversity of viewpoints can be expressed and discussed in an open forum, either in person or virtually, without fear of ostracism. 

HxA is not ...

A political organization. We do not endorse political parties or campaigns nor do we advocate for any one ideology. We simply want to encourage you to feel an "inner permission" to engage openly in dialogue with others on matters that are important to you. 

However ...

As per "The HxA Way,"please: 

  • Make your case with evidence

  • Be intellectually charitable

  • Be intellectually humble 

  • Be constructive

  • Be yourself
