Reclaiming the Culture of Higher Education

Reclaiming the Culture of Higher Education by Heterodox Academcy

Higher education is struggling. Students self-censor in the face of peer pressure and rigid ideologies in the classroom. Scholars struggle to research and write freely inside disciplinary echo chambers and ruling orthodoxies. Increasing incidents of campus disruption, canceling, and shaming disincentivize bold dialogue across difference. Thankfully, faculty, students, staff, and administrators are working everywhere to change campus culture for the better and to renew higher education’s commitment to the rigorous pursuit of knowledge and truth.

This Guide is a compilation of their best strategies and approaches. At Heterodox Academy (HxA) we believe the culture can change by embracing open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement in the classroom, in the disciplines, on the quad, and in the C-suite. In this Guide, readers will find practices, approaches, and ideas for embracing these values no matter where they find themselves on campus.
