2nd Annual Capitol Hill Caucus of Conservative Organizations Reception

Hillsdale College in D.C. recently helped organize the 2nd Annual Capitol Hill Caucus of Conservative Organizations Reception, along with the Conservative Partnership Institute.  Over 200 participants attended the event.

Two dozen organizations and groups participated by tabling and promoting their work and Capitol Hill outreach, while Hillsdale in D.C. promoted the Van Andel Graduate School of Government and the James Madison Fellowship programs.

During the program, Dr. Matthew Spalding, Dean of the Graduate School of Government, spoke to the groups and individuals who are influencing policy in D.C about the importance of continuing education. In summation, Dr. Spalding encouraged the pursuit of higher thinking, furthering education through a variety of experiences and learning, and striving to advocate for the principles on which America was founded.
Thank you to all the organizations who participated at the Reception!
