Hillsdale College Mission Statement

VIRTUS TENTAMINE GAUDET

Hillsdale College was founded in 1844 with a purpose to "develop the minds and improve the hearts of its students," a reference to the moral and intellectual virtues. The driving purpose of athletics at Hillsdale College is to cultivate these virtues. Their practice, on the field of competition, inspires and elevates the minds and characters of those who compete and those who watch.
