Teach Americans how citizenship and free government are under attack with the free online course, “American Citizenship and Its Decline.”

Citizenship is essential to free government and requires vigilance and knowledge to maintain. The long practice of citizenship in America is unprecedented and serves as one of the great achievements of our nation.

But in America today, the independent American citizen faces fundamental threats from dangerous movements that seek to transform American society.

That’s why we are releasing our latest free online course, “American Citizenship and Its Decline.”

Victor Davis Hanson, the Wayne & Marcia Buske Distinguished Fellow in History at Hillsdale College, teaches the course based on his new book The Dying Citizen: How Progressive Elites, Tribalism, and Globalization Are Destroying the Idea of America. (Read on for more about how you can get your copy.)

In this course, Americans will learn the history of citizenship in the West and the challenges it faces from the deep state, progressive economic policies, illegal immigration, and more. Knowledge of the nature and scope of these challenges is vital for everyone who wishes to defend freedom in America.

But Hillsdale needs the support of citizens like you to promote “American Citizenship and Its Decline” along with its other free online courses nationwide. 

Will you partner with us to promote this new free online course and expand other educational outreach efforts on behalf of liberty? 

In addition to enrolling as many people as possible in this new course, we seek to: 

  • Expand the circulation of Imprimis, Hillsdale’s digest of liberty, to hundreds of thousands more Americans, which includes issues like “The Disaster at Our Southern Border” by Mark Morgan, the former Acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.  

  • Send millions of pocket-size copies of America’s founding documents to citizens, teachers, and schoolchildren nationwide. 

  • Help establish additional classical K-12 charter schools nationwide and to provide, free of charge, Hillsdale’s American classical K-12 curriculum (including the new Hillsdale 1776 Curriculum) to increasing thousands of American educators and homeschoolers. 

Your generous tax-deductible gift will help ensure that anyone wishing to learn will have access, free of charge, to our online courses—especially “American Citizenship and Its Decline”—and that these courses reach the widest audience possible.

Here’s one other thing you should know...

We accomplish all of our work while refusing to accept one penny of government funding—not even indirectly in the form of federal or state student loans and grants. NOT. ONE. PENNY...in order to remain INDEPENDENT.

This frees the College from much burdensome and destructive federal regulation … but it also means that the College is entirely DEPENDENT upon the support of citizens, like you, who understand the importance of education to liberty. 

And when you donate to this campaign, you will receive special, early access to this new course.
