Hillsdale College is an independent institution of higher learning founded in 1844 by men and women “grateful to God for the inestimable blessings” resulting from civil and religious liberty and “believing that the diffusion of learning is essential to the perpetuity of these blessings.” It pursues the stated object of the founders: “to furnish all persons who wish, irrespective of nation, color, or sex, a literary, scientific, [and] theological education” outstanding among American colleges “and to combine with this such moral and social instruction as will best develop the minds and improve the hearts of its pupils.” As a nonsectarian Christian institution, Hillsdale College maintains “by precept and example” the immemorial teachings and practices of the Christian faith.
The Halter Shooting Sports Education Center’s purpose is to expose a new generation to shooting sports, encourage older shooters to return to the sport and to bring the ideas of liberty to life. This is a mission unmatched by any school in the country.
New and experienced marksmen at Hillsdale and in the community have a place to participate in shooting sports on an ongoing basis. Plus, the educational component allows individuals to gain a deeper understanding of what the Second Amendment guarantees and the importance of protecting that freedom.
