Goals express ideals, each one representing the highest level that is attainable within the realm of possibility in a particular area. Hampden-Sydney faculty, staff members, trustees, and students have worked together to formulate the following goals in order to clarify for ourselves and others the identifiable and demonstrable features of our ideal Hampden-Sydney student, the good man and good citizen.|
Since 1775 the mission of Hampden-Sydney College has been to form good men and good citizens in an atmosphere of sound learning. To fulfill this mission, the college holds high ideals in each of three areas: character, curriculum, and climate. The College expects its students to be gentlemen of good moral character and to be active and informed participants in the life of their communities. Through their work in classes, students realize that learning is fulfilling work, and fulfilling work draws on learning. In their years at the College, students develop ways of learning that will make their lives productive, as they refine their abilities to read and think critically, analytically, creatively, and independently; acquire an integrated education in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences; and pursue deeper studies in one or more major areas.
