On Nov. 15 we exceeded our goals, and made Hamilton history. More than $1.5 million was raised for financial aid, earning $1.5 million in matching funds to establish two new financial aid endowments.
Hamilton President David Wippman has announced that the College has received funding to supplement the series with a new pilot program called “Common Ground on the Ground.” The idea, Wippman said, is to “stimulate discussion of pressing social issues across a wide range of subject areas, including economics, history, literature, the arts, philosophy, law, and politics.”
The Hamilton Annual Fund again exceeded its fiscal year-end goal, reaching a total of $7.156 million to support College priorities that included student financial aid, digital learning and the academic program, career exploration, athletics, and extracurricular activities. These contributions have an enormous impact on the student experience at Hamilton.
The $493,321, four-year project will bring to campus new equipment, technology, and additional professional development for curricular and co-curricular digital experiences in the arts, and a new technologist to support creative development and advisory support for faculty and students.
