Director’s Note
What a great semester at Hampden-Sydney and the Wilson Center! This fall has been full of the events, programs, trips and excursions the Wilson Center is known for providing. A major highlight has been welcoming and working with 47 young men who are part of our new Wilson Fellows program.

As the Wilson Center grows, we endeavor to work with more students from more disciplines while focusing on the bedrock principles embedded in our culture by General Wilson and Dr. David Marion. We will always focus on providing our young men with the practical skills and grounded theory they need to serve their families, communities, commonwealth, and nation as ‘effective and ethical leaders.’ We endeavor to produce graduates who are honest, thoughtful, focused on serving others in all capacities, and who understand the rights and responsibilities of citizenship in the U.S. constitutional context.

Thank you for taking a minute to read about the Wilson Center. Please reach out with questions. We welcome your engagement in all that we do. Please come and visit- you are always welcome!

Please note the special celebration in honor of General Wilson on February 6th in Richmond at the Commonwealth Club. Please make arrangements to attend this wonderful reception!

Have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season.
