Hillsdale College is a private college in Hillsdale, Michigan. Founded in 1844, the college claims that its liberal arts curriculum is based on the Western heritage as a product of both the Greco-Roman culture and the Judeo-Christian tradition. Hillsdale requires every student, regardless of major, to complete a core curriculum that includes courses on the Great Books, U.S. Constitution, biology, chemistry, and physics.
Since the late 20th century, the college became one of several in the U.S. that decline to accept federal financial support, instead depending entirely on private donations. The college has worked to establish ties to the conservative political establishment, including the Donald Trump administration.
