Classical Liberal Arts Education Meets the Real World

Classical liberal arts education meets the real world: that’s what we are all about. Since Hillsdale’s education is one-of-a-kind, its graduates will be too, so we have a unique opportunity to help our students plan fulfilling futures. Career Services means much more than practical help with job searching; it means conversing with students about happiness, guiding them to reflect on meaningful experiences, connecting them to inspiring alumni, and providing a multiplicity of resources to aid them as they develop their post-Hillsdale plans. We are proud of our graduates’ outstanding success, but our first priority is continuing the soul-deepening work students are undergoing and helping them navigate their transition into the world.

Mission Statement

Through its classical liberal arts education, Hillsdale College teaches its students to consider profound truths, ask perennial questions, and reflect upon their vocations in the world. This prepares them to excel in whatever calling they discern. While helping students to develop their strengths, and while introducing them to opportunities, Career Services encourages students to discover the fulfilling role that is uniquely theirs in the world. It is our goal that students graduate confident in a purposeful life, so that, leavened by their education, they can engage and serve their communities, families, nation, and God.
