In a wide-ranging conversation, Hillsdale College President Larry Arnn discusses the importance of 1620, the despotic ideology of The New York Times, and the importance of families.
In a speech at Hillsdale College, Sec. DeVos conveyed that in American education, the fight has just begun to restore choice and freedom to every family.
Barr said the idea of black lives mattering is not debatable; of course they do. But, he said, the organization doesn’t actually care about black lives, as evidenced by their own statements and behavior.
This is a time when we need more honor and respect for America’s Founding, not less. Hillsdale College’s Liberty Walk reminds us of just that.
Attempts to smear the college are not just dishonest but betray a misunderstanding of why critical race theory has no place in the classical liberal arts.
Hillsdale College is taking prudent measures to hold a safe commencement — a significant and expressive exercise protected by the First Amendment.
From awarding her a scholarship to providing an outpouring of support during an unplanned pregnancy, Hillsdale, Petersen emphasized, spoke loudly and clearly.
‘I look at my acceptance letter and diploma as symbols of the institution seeking justice and equality for those who represent me, and that is: former foster youth, underprivileged, undereducated, pregnant student, white, black, woman, and person.’
The letter signed by the college’s administration argues the institution’s steadfast devotion to fighting for the truth that all men are created equal is proven by its actions rather than public statements.

Dr. Larry P. Arnn teaches the Greek philosopher Aristotle’s ‘Nichomachean Ethics,’ explaining that he defines courage as ‘the right disposition toward pain.’
Teaching on Aristotle’s ‘Nichomachean Ethics,’ Dr. Larry Arnn says it’s our intentions about a choice that determine whether it is a good one.
‘There are obstacles, temptations and confusions that are in the way, but if you think about it and you keep your soul in order and your attitude right, then you will make better choices.’
Many associate happiness with wealth, prosperity, and pleasure. But Aristotle challenges humans to view happiness as an activity — striving to fulfill a purpose.
A healthy political sphere relies on ethical, virtuous individuals who focus on their communities and not solely on themselves.
What kind of ‘help’ are Americans seeking by spending $10 billion on self-help? According to Aristotle, humans simply want to know how to be happy, and how to be good.
By rapidly outproducing ships and focusing on aircraft carriers rather than fancy battleships, the U.S. Navy dominated the Germany and Japanese fleets.
