Current Projects & Activities

As a new group of first-year students prepares to arrive on campus, we are preparing for their arrival with two upcoming surveys that will launch in mid-Summer and early-Fall:

  • In early July, first-years in the Class of 2019 will be invited to participate in the Higher Education Research Institute's CIRP Freshman Survey. This data will help us gain a more comprehensive view of the changing character of first-years at Hamilton. First-year students should look for e-mail invitations from this office (Office of Institutional Research and Assessment) in the first full week of July.
  • As the Fall semester gets under way, first-year students should also look for an invitation to the Interfaith Diversity Experiences & Attitudes Longitudinal Survey (IDEALS). Administered by the Interfaith Youth Core, this survey "seeks to better understand students encounters with religious, spiritual, and worldview diversity..." First-years should look for e-mail invitations from the IDEAL team near the start of the semester.
