Hampden-Sydney College is a selective liberal arts institution enrolling approximately 1000 students. Founded in 1775, it has been in continuous operation for 243 years, making it the tenth oldest institution of higher learning in the United States. Our beautiful 1300-acre campus includes hiking/biking trails, a Frisbee golf course and an adventure high ropes and zip line course. The campus is less than 7 miles from downtown Farmville, which includes a historic walkable downtown with a local brewery, art and craft galleries, restaurants, and a rails-to-trail state park that extends over 15 miles in each direction from town. Five additional state parks are located within 30 miles and offer camping, fishing, hiking, boating, swimming, and horseback riding. Farmville is also home to Longwood University and the Moton Museum, which is listed on the US Civil Rights Trail. Farmville is located 65 miles west of Richmond, 50 miles east of Lynchburg, and 75 miles south of Charlottesville, providing abundant opportunities for cultural and artistic resources, field trips, and employment opportunities for partners.

Hampden-Sydney is one of four liberal arts colleges in the United States dedicated to the education of men, and our mission is to educate "good men and good citizens in an atmosphere of sound learning." As a community, we are dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse staff committed to working in a multicultural environment and strongly encourage applications from women and minoritized groups.
