Dr. Folsom speaking at a freedom forum.

Freedom Forums

Freedom Forums, held two or three times per year in locations around the country, are two-day seminars that address the theme, “Freedom and Western Civilization.”

Friends of the College and their children or grandchildren are welcome to attend. Designed for a general audience, the program consists of six lectures by three Hillsdale College faculty members from the departments of politics, history, economics, or English. These lectures offer an introductory overview of the kind of teaching that takes place at Hillsdale.

The cost to attend a Freedom Forum is $50 per person. Complimentary invitations are extended to President’s Club members and Alumni.

For more information or to receive an invitation, contact Peggy Youngs.
