X Partisan is a cross-partisan blog that began on the Davis campus of the University of California. The project showcases work by students coming from very different political perspectives. We believe that xpartisan dialogue is the only corrective to the distortions of the vitriol contaminating campuses and communities all over our country.
Our goals are to:
- To address the need for the college writing program to create a coherent set of writing and debate skills on controversial subjects
- To enable faculty to intellectually and temperamentally evolve by being pushed to model tolerance
- To help form students that are not only prepared on a technical level for the rigors of professional work, but also ethically, philosophically, and historically literate
