UAH selected for Heterodox Academy campus diversity program

HUNTSVILLE – The University of Alabama in Huntsville has been selected to be part of the inaugural cohort of Heterodox Academy’s Campus Community program.

Launched in 2018, Heterodox Academy is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization based in New York City. The organization works to impact the quality of research and education by promoting viewpoint diversity, open inquiry and constructive disagreement across higher education.

Dr. Nathan Tenhundfeld, an assistant professor of psychology, and Dr. Vineetha Menon, an
assistant professor in the department of computer science, will be co-chairing the UAH HxA chapter.

“I couldn’t be more excited about what this will be able to provide for faculty and students alike,” said Tenhundfeld.

HxA members include more than 5,400 faculty, staff and students from large research universities to community colleges. They represent nearly every discipline throughout 49 states and around the globe. The campus communities are organized by HxA members at each university.

Campus communities provide HxA members opportunities to encourage positive culture change. Each campus community receives at least $3,000 in program expenses directly from HxA to support activities in its first year, as well as consulting from staff and peer support from across the network.
