The Office of Institutional Research and Assessment is responsible for collecting, organizing, analyzing and reporting historical and current data about Hamilton College and peer institutions to support college planning, assessment, and overall effectiveness. The office also participates in the Higher Education Data Sharing (HEDS) Consortium and is a member of the New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium.
During the spring 2015 semester, the Higher Education Data Sharing (HEDS) consortium administered a sexual assault campus climate survey to students at Hamilton and 54 other small colleges in the United States. The results were compiled and data were provided to the participating colleges the following fall. Five hundred and twenty Hamilton students (a 26% response rate, compared to 19% among all colleges) submitted the survey. Hamilton’s respondents were 67% female, 32% male and 1% other, and included 27% first-year students, 26% sophomores, 19% juniors, and 27% seniors.
These data will be used to inform policy and decision-making concerning sexual misconduct and sexual assault at Hamilton College. For questions, additional information and to learn more about the resources available for addressing matters involving unwanted sexual contact, sexual assault and relationship violence, please contact:
