Celebrating 175 Years | A Mission That Lasts

something last a long time? Can it last if its mission
changes along the way? Or would that make it
something different altogether? A thing only lasts when its
original purposes remain intact, steadfast, unwavering. 175 years ago,
Hillsdale College was founded with a mission defined
by four enduring purposes– learning, character,
faith, and freedom– the same timeless mission
that guides its work today. Hillsdale College– pursuing
truth and defending liberty since 1844.

About the author


  1. The same is true for the US Constitution. It should not be changed based on political winds. The USA should adhere to the original intention with legitimate amendments.

  2. I am happy to see colleges such as Hillsdale continuing in the teaching of the foundational principles of our Declaration and Constitution.

  3. No it is not the last Intelligent University…They would humbly tell you that…Truth is Power and lies beget lies…L'chaim from Jacova 11..Gevurah born March 11…in Bethlehem…Rain and Anchor..

  4. I have taken several free courses ,from the Constitution and what it represents to our nation, to the role of the Supreme Court and all the judiciary in the interpretation of our Constitution as our Founding Fathers saw it. The lectures, discussions, etc. are all conducted by excellent professors all giving you a complete understanding of what our nation was and our nation is at the present time. I invite all of you out there, if not done it yet, to enroll in these courses and with your donations help this outstanding and patriotic institution, Hillsdale College, to continue its outstanding mission of preserving our Constitution which has given us Americans the freedom and liberty that our Founding Fathers envisioned. God bless Hillsdale College and all its faculty and students!.

  5. I'm so proud of Hillsdale College; wish I could have made it my Alma Mater but I'm thrilled to be a college grad of this great nation and we'll of enough to help support Hillsdale College in some smaller way. God bless you all. Victoria Greenroyd

  6. Is there any significance to including in the video a student (actress?) who bears more than a passing resemblance to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? A subtle message, perhaps.

  7. This "4 pillars" slogan is hiding a very fundamental lie: 1) the school did originally exist as a baptist college, but they became a secular school at some point and have existed as such through most of modern times. I am an '07 alumnus and the school was definitely not a christian school when I went there….or I wouldnt have attended. They changed in 2015 or 16 so that they could piggyback on the hobby lobby case and discriminate more in their hiring practices 2) the stance on the constitution was adopted in the 80's or 90's…not originally a major focus.

    Im against this marketing campaign because the college did change, and that is ok (personally I am against the christianity swing they took in 2015)…I'm against the fundamental dishonesty of the campaign and want to record that this is not correct
