The spring semester is well underway and the Wilson Center continues to solidify its reputation as a popular meeting place for faculty, students, alumni, prospective students, and guest speakers. It is not uncommon for the Center to be hosting some kind of gathering six days a week, and even seven on occasion. Eighteen students, for example, gathered on Sunday, February 5, for a leadership skills workshop with Dr. Gail Funke, a consultant with the Federal Executive Institute and the U.S. Marine Corps. On the prior Saturday, several representatives of the Center met with prospective students who were visiting from Newport News. The first half of the month also included programs on Afghanistan and Russia, and the month will end with two special events: a merit badge workshop on international law and organizations for more than forty Boy Scout (February 25) and a program on international development featuring alumni from US AID (United States Agency for International Development) and United Way Worldwide (Feburary 29).
The faculty and staff of the Wilson Center are deeply indebted to our many benefactors who have assisted us in creating a first-class leadership, public service, and public affairs center at Hampden-Sydney. The beneficiaries of our labors number in the thousands and they are enriching professional, non-profit, and governmental organizations across this great country. Our commitment to insuring that Hampden-Sydney College remains in the forefront of leadership and public service training for young men remains as rock-solid today as it was at the time of the establishment of the Wilson Center in the mid-1990s.
