Current Projects & Activities

We are working on some exciting projects this Summer!

  • Congratulations and welcome to the Class of 2018!  Starting in mid-July, students in the Class of 2018 will be participating in The CIRP Freshman Survey, which is administered jointly by Hamilton and the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI).  This survey will help provide insight into the impact of colleges on students.  First-year students should look for links to the Survey and updates of their completion status on their MyHamilton page in mid-July.
  • Welcome also to the Class of 2018 Parents!  We would like to hear from you as well!  In a few weeks, we will be working with the Student Transition Committee to administer the New Parents Survey.  This survey aims to increase our understanding of how the College is doing in helping new students and their parents transition to Hamilton.  Please look for e-mail invitations around late-August to early-September.  If you have any questions, do not hestitate to contact Gordon Hewitt, Assistant Dean of Faculty for Institutional Research and Assessment.
  • We are also excited to be working with the Communications & Development Office on a survey that will help them find out how they can better communicate with alumni.  The survey is currently open.  If you have any questions or would like more information about it, please contact the Communications Office.
  • This coming Fall, we will be participating in the Consortium on High Achievement and Success (CHAS)'s survey on campus climate.  Students should look for e-mail invitations in to participate in mid-October.
