Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Michigan was founded in 1844. It is a small, private, liberal arts college with a strong conservative and libertarian emphasis. The coeducational student body of about 1,300 students pursue a four-year curriculum leading to the BA (bachelor of arts) or BS (bachelor of science) degree.[2]

Hillsdale College is one of only three major colleges that has remained completely outside of federal regulations by declining federal funding and federally guaranteed student loans.[3]

Hillsdale boasts a 10-1 student faculty ratio, and sponsors off-campus internships, overseas study programs and the adjunct seminars of the Center for Constructive Alternatives, the Mises Lectures in free-market economics, the National Leadership Seminars and the Hoogland Center for Teacher Excellence.

Hillsdale publishes the widely read Imprimis newsletter. Adjacent to the campus is the model primary and secondary school, Hillsdale Academy, whose comprehensive Reference Guide is used in hundreds of schools throughout the country.

Hillsdale teaches the theory of evolution as though it were true.
