Our Mission

Cogito at Hampden-Sydney College is committed to the safe exploration of the large issues of our day and to the ideas of beauty, truth, justice and duty. We believe that the academy is enriched by the traditions and teaching of the Christian faith and that mature faith can be upheld and strengthened by intellectual integrity. To these ends, we seek to establish communities and formats that promote thoughtful discussion, mutual respect and the joy of discovery.
