Enhancing Viewpoint Diversity
Developing Intellectual Humility
The SAPIENT Being proposes to help eliminate illiberalism in American’s public academic institutions by implementing the Make Free Speech Again On Campus by Enhancing Viewpoint Diversity and Developing Intellectual Humility Program to high school, community college and university campuses.
The SAPIENT Being’s primary goal is to enhance intellectual humility, promote viewpoint diversity, and return freedom of speech and expression to high school, community college and university campuses by creating SAPIENT Being Clubs, Chapters and Alliances. The intent of our campus organizations is for members to reach a higher state of being on their lifelong journey towards sapience.
The Society Advancing Personal Intelligence & Enlightenment Now Together (the acronym for the first word in SAPIENT Being) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, non-partisan, non-religious, and non-sectarian organization that subscribes to only one ideology; which is human sapience (wisdom) and we welcome with open minds, arms and hearts the believers and practitioners from all ideologies, faiths and walks of life to help create a more accountable and democratic student government.
The SAPIENT Being is committed to creating a network of marginalized student and academic stakeholders united in their intent to see their academic institutions live up to their ideals of truth, civil disagreement, and intellectual discovery. We encourage and assist high school and college faculty to stand up for freedom of speech and open inquiry without imposing undue restrictions.
We envision a campus culture where ideas can be expressed, beliefs challenged, and theories critically analyzed using the scientific method without the threat of illiberalism. By doing so, we develop a more comprehensive and valid understanding of varied social and political perspectives, freed from the fear of reprisal by peers, faculty, and orthodox viewpoints.
The SAPIENT Being is a great venue for this cause along with independent and open minded students who want to hear both sides of an issue, from any topic, without intimidation. It's also a great opportunity for liberal and conservative students to burst each other’s bubbles and openly debate the hottest and most contentious issues facing America and the world today.
