Preparing men of character for lives of consequence
Hampden-Sydney prepares men to be leaders. Our students are given opportunities to explore, practice, and hone their leadership skills so they can go on to become tomorrow's CEOs, business founders, military officers, college presidents, and civic and political leaders. The Wilson Center for Leadership in the Public Interest hosts lectures, forums, symposia, and excursions that help develop effective and ethical leaders. With direction from current and former military and political leaders, students gain an understanding of the challenges confronting the United States and the world.
Established in 1996 and named for the College's president from 1992-2000, Lt. Gen. Samuel V. Wilson (U.S. Army, Rt.), the Center oversees leadership, public service, and civic education for Hampden-Sydney students, faculty, staff, and alumni; area high school teachers and students; and a variety of community and national educational organizations.
The Wilson Center offers the following specialty leadership programs:
- The Freshman Leadership Program
- The James Madison Public Service Certificate Program
- The Military Leadership and National Security Studies Program
The Wilson Center and Hampden-Sydney College mourn the passing of a true friend and dedicated alumnus.
