To be a catalyst for social change and a resource for shared experience at Hamilton College.


  • Support: We will engage the Hamilton community by addressing the holistic needs of students in order to create a space where they can thrive and realize self-actualization. 
  • Standards: We will practice inclusion, equity, and representation of and for all people and identities. We expect accountability, integrity, and trust as we work on institutional change with regard to campus culture and structures. 
  • Scholarship: We will partner to support scholarship, education, and experiential engagement as a means to create a more equitable Hamilton experience.
  • Leadership: We commit to examining power structures, and creating opportunities for the experiences of those at the margins to be centered.
