I am very proud to be a member of Heterodox Academy. Heterodox Academy is a politically diverse group of more than 2,000 professors and graduate students who have come together to improve the quality of research and education in universities by increasing viewpoint diversity, mutual understanding, and constructive disagreement. HxA’s website is located at https://heterodoxacademy.org.

Heterodox Academy, now more than 2,000 strong, stands against censorship and for free inquiry.
