Hillsdale, a private conservative college in Hillsdale, Michigan, was founded in 1844 by abolitionists known as Free Will Baptists. It has a liberal arts curriculum that 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 concentration of studies, to complete a core curriculum that includes courses on the Great Books, the U.S. Constitution, biology, chemistry, and physics. Since the late 20th century, the college has been one of several in the United States that decline governmental financial support, instead depending entirely on private donations to supplement students' tuition.
Political accountability—politics—is what ultimately ensures our system does its work fairly and with proper recognition of the many interests and values at stake. Government power completely divorced from politics is tyranny.
